Hey! I am Danish Pruthi, I am an assistant professor at the Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bangalore. At IISc, I guide an NLP group focused on inclusive evaluation, model control (e.g., editing, de-biasing, or personalizing trained models), and also on inspecting and validating data sources (in response to biased or harmful behavior). I hope to also work on important NLP applications, e.g., content moderation, assisted writing, etc. Lastly, I am also interested in understanding the broader societal implications of language technologies.
I received my PhD from CMU, where I was co-advised by Zachary C. Lipton and Graham Neubig. My doctoral research focused on addressing issues concerning the interpretability of deep learning models. I completed my bachelors degree in computer science from BITS Pilani, Pilani in 2015. I've also spent time doing research at Google AI, Microsoft Research, Facebook AI Research, and Amazon AI. I am a recipient of the Siebel Scholarship and the CMU Presidential Fellowship.
I am looking for 1-2 PhD students (deadline: 22/03/2024), more details are here.
