My current research focuses on natural language processing and modern digital libraries. We apply tools from machine learning, especially deep learning, to address the challenges. Example problems include extraction of keyphrases from documents, extraction of entities and relations from documents, identification of topics and their distribution in text corpora, and automatic question-answering. We are also interested in the theoretical understanding of deep neural networks. In the recent past, I have also worked on mobile computing and wireless networks.
