I work in the area of machine learning and information retrieval. Currently, I am Applied Scientist with Amazon Search headquartered in Palo Alto. Before this I spent some time at IIIT, Vadodara as Faculty Associate. Before that, I finished PhD thesis titled "Cross-view Embeddings for Information Retrieval" at Technical University of Valencia (UPV) and my advisors were Paolo Rosso at Technical University of Valencia, Spain and Rafael E. Banchs at Institute for Infocomm Research (I2R), Singapore. At UPV, I was a member of Pattern Recognition and Human Language Technologies (PRHLT) Research Center.

Feel free to reach out if you want to collaborate!
