My area of expertise is in the field of social sensing. Prior to joining Google, I completed my PhD from UIUC, where I developed scalable systems and algorithms for real-time summarization and factual distillation of social content streams, in the presence of social influence, bias, and polarization. I have received best paper award at IEEE ICAC 2015, best-in-session presentation award at IEEE INFOCOM 2017, and Chirag Foundation Graduate Fellowship in Computer Science (2011-12).
