PhD Intern | June 2016 – August 2016
- Designed a web based text analyzer for chemical analysts, to help them parse huge volumes of information from chemical incident reports in a short of time.
- Designed the application to let the user upload a file or copy and paste any text material.
- The backend database was designed to identify keywords, highlight them, and connect those keywords to US Chemical Safety Board Report database, New Reports related to these keywords.
- A quick view application was also designed that used Natural Language Processing Toolkit Libraries to identify 4 important snippets of information and display it to the user
Clemson University, Clemson, SC
Dissertation Research | Fall 2015 – Present
Developing a phone based application that detects digital dating abuse from text messages.
- Designed, conducted and analyzed a focus group study to understand the feasibility of creating a phone app that detects dating abuse.
- Conducted a study to create a digital dating abuse training set specifically simulating abusive text messages.
- Conducted a study to label the training set using domain experts.
- Used python’s NLTK library to write a script that uses supervised machine learning algorithms to classify text and abusive or non-abusive. A 87.5 % accuracy was achieved using Linear Support Vector Machine Classifier.
Research Experience | Spring 2012 – Fall 2014
- Co-designed and conducted user studies for an affective computing system that uses physiological measures gathered via wrist worn sensors to understand how students are engaged in the classroom.

Clemson Career Development Workshop | Summer 2017
The goal of the camp is to support the readiness of high-achieving students from diverse backgrounds to enter college. The camp is STEM-focused, but students will also be exposed to areas in humanities and social sciences.
Instructor – Exploring computer science
- Presented the different opportunities computer science has to offer when it comes to career choices.
- Discussed programming concepts such as sequential programming, loops and conditionals using real life examples
- Used VENVI (programming software that allows users to program virtual character to perform sequence of steps in a 3D virtual environment) to explain programming concepts.
- The end goal was to create dance sequences, using the programming concepts, which they could present to the whole class.
- Goals for the computing workshop was to expose students to computer science, teach them basic computing concepts, encourage them to program their dance sequences and finally present their work in front of the whole class.
