About Me

Hi! I’m Venkat (he/him/his). I’m a PhD student in Computational Linguistics at The University of Texas at Austin. My research focuses on intergroup biases in online communication. I'm fortunate to be a member of a rich group of researchers working on NLP at UT.

Profile Picture

Outside of research, I love cooking,running, strength training, biking, building apps for Apple platforms, and the movies.

My full name is really long — unless you're citing me in a paper or official document, call me Venkat (pronounced when-cut).

This site is built and written by me, Venkat. It's a Jekyll site hosted on GitHub Pages. Nova and BBEdit are essential apps that I use everyday, without which writing this site would be a slog.

The body text of this website is set in Valkyrie, while the headings are set in Hermes Maia. Fixed-width text is typeset in Triplicate Code.
