Biography

I am a PhD student at the Multiagent Systems and Service-Oriented Computing Lab, Department of Computer Science, North Carolina State University. My advisor is Prof. Munindar P. Singh. I received my B.E. in Computer Engineering from Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel Institute of Technology, Gujarat University in 2007.

Prior to joining NC State, I worked as a Researcher with the Requirements Engineering Group (Software Engineering Lab) led by Dr. Smita Ghaisas, at TCS Innovation Labs, Tata Research Development and Design Centre (TRDDC), India. At TRDDC, I worked on requirements engineering, social software and semantic web, and knowledge extraction, representation, reuse and reasoning. The research mainly focused on making available domain knowledge (tacit as well as explicit) visible and accessible, so as to make it amenable for reconfiguration and reuse.
