Short bio

I am a PhD student in Human Language Technologies Lab of FBK. I am in my 4th year of doctoral study advised by Marcello Federico and Mauro Cettolo. The current year of my PhD is partially sponsored by eBay Inc. I spent my summer of 2013 working as an intern at XRCE, Grenoble. My Research Interests include Machine Translation and related stuff to computational linguistics. I did my Bachelors and Masters from International Institute of Information Technology, Hyd. where I was a dual degree student. 

I code quite often and put everything on github.
