PhD Candidate, College of Information Sciences and Technology

Penn State University

About Me

I’m a third-year Ph.D. student at the College of Information Sciences and Technology, The Pennsylvania State University. My advisor is Prof. C.Lee Giles. I am a member of The Intelligent Information Systems Research Laboratory in which I work specifically on the CiteSeerX project. Here, with the help of Dr. Jian Wu I am responsible for crawling, updating the index and maintaining the repository of academic documents at scale(>20M documents).

My thesis is on building advance indexing and retrieval techniques for Math Search. This work is under the project MathSeer on which I am actively working. I am using Deep Learning to learn representations for Math formulae which will enable Content-based image retrieval for Math.
