Hiba Ahsan

I am a second year MS/PhD student at the Manning College of Information and Computer Sciences, UMass Amherst. I work on extracting information from electronic patient health records using machine learning and natural language processing techniques. My particular interests in the clinical NLP domain include:

  • Behavioral testing
  • Learning capabilities that lead to better generalization

Prior to joining UMass, I was a Research Engineer in the Advertising team at Microsoft IDC where I worked on improving the relevance of Sponsored Search results. I hold a Bachelors in Information Technology from the National Institute of Technology Karnataka, India.
