About me:

I am a fifth year PhD Student in the CSE department advised by Profs Eric Fosler-Lussier and Rajiv Ramnath, with major area in Artificial Intelligence and minor areas in Computational Linguistics and Software Systems.

This Spring of 2018, I am interning as Applied Scientist with the Bots.AI group @ Amazon


Large scale text mining using machine learning, deep learning and transfer learning on heterogeneous data sources including formal and informal text such as news, blogs and microblogs, open access scholarly articles, product reviews and search query logs, for extracting novel associations among latent concepts (candidate concepts, entities, emergent themes or causal factors), with minimal use of knowledge-based resources, aiding a wide range of discovery-oriented tasks including semantic tag recommendation, personalized recommendation, document retrieval, question answering and predicting customer engagement.

Deep learning methods on biomedical literature for establishing functional similarity between biomedical concepts including diseases and genes. Predictive modeling for scientific workflows and Big Data..

But most of all, being mommy to my wonderful, adorable, 6-year old, with whom I enjoy reading, playing, riding the bike, doing crafts, making jokes (she's the goofy one) and who is always trying to teach me a thing or two on the piano or with her gymnastics moves.. :)

Hi! Welcome to Manirupa's home @ OSU CSE!

This webpage is meant mostly for inspiration rather than information :) but hope you do find both..

Here are some of my favorite quotes from Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland
I almost -- I almost wish I hadn't gone down 
that rabbit-hole -- and yet -- and yet -- it's rather 
curious, you know, this sort of life!
		-- Lewis Carroll, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

				... On life as a CSE grad student :)

Alice:How long is forever? 
White Rabbit:Sometimes, just one second. 
		-- Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

				... Race conditions in a Quantum Computer?

"Begin at the beginning," the King said, very gravely, 
"and go on till you come to the end: then stop".
		-- Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

				... Will this program ever halt? 

"Well! I've often seen a cat without a grin,"
thought Alice "but a grin without a cat! It's the most 
curious thing I ever saw in my life!"
		-- Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

				... Dangling pointers? Orphaned processes?

You're entirely bonkers. But I'll tell you a secret. 
All the best people are.
		-- Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

				... My Heroes :) -- E.W.Dijsktra, Grace Hopper, Joan Clarke, Karen Spärck Jones, Geoff Hinton, Hermione Granger, Sirius Black 

Cat: Where are you going?
Alice: Which way should I go?
Cat: That depends on where you are going.
Alice: I don't know.
Cat: Then it doesn't matter which way you go.
		-- Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

				... On software verification, dynamic branch prediction,...spaghetti code :) ?

And here are some rather annoying ones...! :)

That's the reason they're called lessons," the Gryphon 
remarked: "because they lessen from day to day. 
		-- Lewis Carroll, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

I wonder if I've been changed in the night? Let me think: 
was I the same when I got up this morning? I almost think 
I can remember feeling a little different. But if I'm not 
the same, the next question is 'Who in the world am I?' 
Ah, that's the great puzzle!
		-- Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

Of course it is, said the Duchess, who seemed ready to 
agree to everything that Alice said; there's a large mustard-mine 
near here. And the moral of that is: The more there is of mine, 
the less there is of yours.
		-- Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

Be what you would seem to be -- or, if you'd like it put more 
simply -- Never imagine yourself not to be otherwise than what 
it might appear to others that what you were or might have 
been was not otherwise than what you had been would have appeared 
to them to be otherwise.
		-- Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland
		English author & recreational mathematician (1832 - 1898)
