Hello there. Welcome to my academic portfolio!

My name is Rabindra Lamsal. I completed my BE in Computer Engineering from the Department of Computer Science & Engineering, Kathmandu University (2012-16), and M.Tech from the School of Computer and Systems Sciences, Jawaharlal Nehru University (2017-19). I was also associated with the Special Centre for Disaster Research, Jawaharlal Nehru University, as a Project associate from 2018-19.

My areas of research interest are Machine Learning, Natural Language Processing, and Social Computing.

I maintain a list of my publications and research projects in the Research page, and a list of non-research projects in the Projects page.

To get a better insight on my academic life so far, you can have a look at my curriculum vitae.
