Research Interests

My research area broadly includes information retrieval and text mining involving unstructured textual documents as well as structured knowledge graphs. Specifically, automated fact-checking, question answering and coversational search over knowledge graphs. These days I am spending more time on my startup Factiverse. In past I have worked on news event mining, ranking and recommendation etc. My past research areas also include designing systems and algorithms for scalable publish/subscribe systems with applications to social networks.
