I am a PhD student at the Kno.e.sis Center, Wright State University, Dayton, OH.
in the area of Semantic Web
under the guidance of Dr. Amit P.
Sheth, who is the founder and director of Kno.e.sis Center.
I'm co-advised by Dr. T. K. Prasad with whom I work on devising algorithms to deal with
heterogeneity, uncertainty, incompleteness, and dynamism in domains such as sustainability (e.g.,
Smart Cities) and Healthcare.
My research interests include Semantic Web, Information Extraction,
Internet of Things (IoT), and knowledge
representation and reasoning under uncertainty using probabilistic reasoning techniques.
Specifically, I work on algorithms that can leverage existing knowledge of a domain (e.g.,
ConceptNet, domain ontology) to support probabilistic models. I enjoy applying my research to
challenging problems of extracting and understanding events in domains such as Smart Cities and
