I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Humanities and Social Sciences, IIT Delhi, India.
My broad areas of research are human sentence processing, natural language modeling, natural language parsing,
and dependency grammars. These topics lie at the intersection of psychology and computational/theoretical
My current research investigates the sources of sentence complexity such as working-memory, orthography,
grammatical representation and parsing strategy. In practice this entails understanding what makes a sentence
difficult for humans during real-time comprehension and production. My research group examines such questions using behavioral,
corpus-based as well as computational methods. In addition, I am also interested in building automatic tools
that are informed by this research.

I am looking for bright and hard-working graduate and undergraduate students to work on state-of-the-art research in the domains mentioned above.
