I am a 1st year PhD student in IRAC at the University of Bedfordshire, advised by Dr. Haiming Liu and co-advised by Dr. Ingo Frommholz. My research interest is in Quantum Information Retrieval. I study the quantum theory evolving behind information retrieval with focus on user-oriented IR based on Information Foraging Theory. My research spans a wide range of topics in this area, including existing Quantum-IR frameworks, mathematical formalism behind Quantum Theory; Quantum Probability, and their applications in the study of information retrieval (IR), interactive IR in general.

Besides IR, I am also interested in machine learning, deep learning, AI, and their applications in natural language processing, IR, and CV. Some of the codes for my projects are available on GitHub.

Before coming to University of Bedfordshire, I got my B.Tech in Computer Science & Engineering from University Institute of Engineering & Technology, CSJM University, Kanpur, India in 2017. I was previously interned with Kubernetes and OpenShift team under the Google Summer of Code program in the summer of 2017, followed by another 3 months internship with OpenStack & IBM team under the Linux Foundation.
