About MySelf

I am a Ph.D student in Computer Science from Instituto Politécnico Nacional, where I am studying in Natural Language and Text Processing Laboratory in Center for Computing Research (Centro de Investigación en Computación). My advisors are Dr. Grigori Sidorov, Dr. Alexander Gelbukh and Dr. Alisa Zhila.

I have obtained my masters in Applied Mathematics and Informatics from Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology.
My advisors were Prof. Alexander I. Galushkin (late), Prof. Eduard D. Avedian, Ilya Voronkov. Andrei Raigorodskii was my program coordinator.

I have obtained my BS(HON) in Mathematics from Government College University.

My primary research interest lies in the Natural Language Processing, Artificial Intelligence and Data Analytics.

Broadly my area of research is Computational Linguistics, Fake News Detection and Deception Detection. More specifically, my primary research interest lies in fact checking of the text. Departing from these areas, I have also worked on the problems of Text classification for customer’s reviews of text. In parallel to my main focus, I have also worked on the semantic analysis.

In my spare time, I love to get in touch with nature because I reckon distances and differences are the secret tonics of creativity. I always try to get ready for the new experience and understand the beauty of nature. I like to develop social attraction with people and know about their valuable information. I am a very open minded person with positive attitude and love to meet open minded people too.
