Natural Language Processing

I am a Research Assistant at Insight Centre for Data Analytics @NUI Galway. I am working in the Unit for Natural Language Processing (UNLP) under the supervision of Dr. Paul Buitelaar. My main work is with the Huawei TP project. The project work involves determining semantic similarities between the user query and standard questions, Named-Entity Recognition.

I studied MSc in Artificial Intelligence from NUI Galway. During my thesis, I focused on deep learning techniques for NLP tasks. My thesis was on the “Deep Learning Model for Automatic Term Recognition”. As part of the implementation, I used the BERT embedding and EEAP model.

During my masters I have also worked as an Intern at Insight Centre for Data Analytics under the supervision of Dr. John P McCrae. Main work involved developing REST API for Naisc 1.0, a tool for linking datasets created by the SFI Insight Centre for Data Analytics and the ELEXIS (European Lexicographic Infrastructure) project.

Before Masters, I have worked at Intel Technologies and CGI Group Inc as Software Engineer and gained working knowledge on Java, Agile, Scrum, CI/CD.
