We meet again :)

How to pronounce my name, you ask?

r aa g ih n ee

/ˈrɑːɡəni/



I live in Bangalore. They call it the Silicon Valley of India, and rightly so. Being at the hub of technological advancements (and the endless accompanying opportunities), I’ve found myself working on innovative, industry-disruptive AI technologies.

But creating conversational agents was never part of the plan.

Time for a quick backstory?

While doing my undergraduate studies in English literature, I was inclined to pursue academic research. So, I naturally gravitated towards attending graduate school for a Masters of Arts in English. I graduated with a dual major in Linguistics and Communication Studies, with distinction, and a placement offer from Samsung Research and Development.

I was all set to take forward my Master’s Dissertation on the Semiotic Analysis of Brand Names & Advertising Messages for doctoral research. But the opportunity to extend my academic knowledge in linguistics to the world of chatbots and cognitive assistants was irresistible.

And that’s how I got here!

When I’m not building dialogue systems, you’ll find me obsessing over food, kopi luwak, books, nature walks, and the mountains v/s beaches debate.
