Georgia Institute of Technology, Machine Learning, Advisors : Rampi Ramprasad and Chao Zhang

Pranav is a PhD student in Machine Learning at Georgia Institute of Technology advised by Rampi Ramprasad and Chao Zhang.

Pranav works on developing natural language processing methods to extract structured information and insights from scientific literature, which has challenges unique to it. Data locked away in scientific text is multi-modal just like in financial documents, i.e., split across text, tables & figures and moreover, entity relationships can span long distances in text. Pranav’s research tackles these challenges, the goal being to build systems that can automatically extract data from scientific literature and train downstream machine learning models with it.

Pranav received a bachelor’s and master’s degree from the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay. As an undergraduate, he was an active quizzer and won several national competitions. He is an avid traveler and has visited 17 countries to date.
