I am primarily interested in the fusion of ideas from databases, information retrieval and machine learning to develop scalable analytics systems. Recently, I am working on:

  • Large-scale graph data management
  • Influence Propagation and Community Formation on Location- and Activity-based Social Networks
  • Knowledge-bases - infrastructure, modelling and practical usage
  • Data wrangling - data integration, relationship discovery and visualization
  • Information Retrieval using KB and neural models

I am an associate professor at the department of Computer Science and Engineering at IIT Delhi, and an adjunct faculty member at IIIT Delhi. Until recently I worked as a research scientist at IBM Research as part of AI Research team. Before joining IBM in 2014, I worked as a faculty member at IIIT-Delhi, where I was also heading the Max-Planck Partner Group on Large-scale Graph Search and Mining. Even before joining IIIT-D, I was a senior researcher at the Max-Planck Institute for Informatics (MPII) where I headed the subgroup of Text and Web Mining within the Databases and Informatics Systems department. My PhD(2005), for my work on building a database system for supporting a range of bioinformatics applications, was from the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore.

I am on the lookout for Masters and PhD students (current and graduates) to work with me on topics related to large-scale graphs search/mining, information retrieval and knowledge management. Please drop me a mail if you are interested in working with me.
