Who am I?

I am a computer scientist, artificial intelligence researcher, and assistant professor of computer science at the University of New Orleans, USA.


Research Description: 


AI has advanced in leaps and bounds in recent years and is shaping the world around us in the most unique ways. I use hybrid & knowledge-aware, explainable AI techniques to address complex problems in our daily life that challenge the boundaries of human and machine intelligence. My research interest lies at the intersection of connectionist and logicist AI, encompassing work in diverse topics, such as: 

Deep Learning/ ML – Logic & Automated Reasoning – Commonsense Reasoning – Natural Language Processing (NLP) – Question Answering – Problem-Solving – Knowledge Representation and Reasoning – Human-Machine Teaming – Cognitive Modeling – Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) – Computational Social Science


For the mutual progress of humanity and science, we must be able to use AI, not as mere tools but as our able teammates. The overarching research goal is to make progress in this direction, using hybrid methods. This, more often than not, leads to exploration of problems at the intersection of Computer Science and Cognitive Science or similar scientific domains that call for interdisciplinary approaches.

Previously, I worked in hybrid Artificial Intelligence based techniques as a graduate research assistant in Rensselaer AI & Reasoning (RAIR) Lab, with my advisor Dr. Selmer Bringsjord.

Special Note:

I plan to admit a new PhD student to start in Fall 2023/Spring 2024.
