My PhD research focuses on uncovering user preferences and relationships in social media using machine learning techniques. As users contribute social media data and interact with other users at social media sites, the data trace left by users reveals their behaviour in adopting products and content as well as their relationships with other users.

As part of our university's collaboration with CMU on the Living Analytics Research Centre (LARC), I was selected to be part of the pioneer batch of students for an exchange programme at CMU. The research during the exchange programme addressed an important problem that emerged recently due to the proliferation of micro-blogs such as Twitter. 

During my internship at Social Computing Group, Hewlett Packard Research Lab (HPLabs), I worked on "Automatic Summarization of Events from Social Media” with one of HPLabs' scientist Sitaram Asur. We discovered that tweets written around the same time for a specific event are likely to be similar in content.
