Ramakanth Pasunuru

About



I am a Research Scientist at FAIR, Meta. I received my Ph.D. in 2021 from Computer Science Department, UNC Chapel Hill (where I was advised by Prof. Mohit Bansal), and my B.Tech and M.Tech from IIT Kharagpur in 2015.

I am interested in broad range of areas within NLP such as multi-modal generation, reasoning, summarization, and language modeling.
