My name is Kavita Ganesan and I am currently a Senior Data Scientist at GitHub working on projects relating to large scale text analytics. In my most recent project at GitHub, I developed the machine learning algorithm for suggesting topics for the GitHub topics feature. I am also an active contributor for RxNLP. During my Ph.D years, I developed the FindiLike system and the algorithms behind it including Opinosis, Micropinion Generation, Opinion-Based Entity Ranking and OpinoFetch. My Ph.D. was focused in the overlapping areas of NLP, text and data mining, information retrieval and machine learning. I trained under the guidance of Prof. ChengXiang Zhai. My publications and other activities can be found on my website. To get in touch with me, please use my lastname.firstname@gmail.com.
