Briti Deb

Areas of Interest & Expertise

  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Data Analysis
  • Social Media


My research interests centre around the development and application of artificial intelligence techniques to discover new knowledge from data. In particular, I am interested in understanding the utility of social data and platforms in addressing various data analysis problems and developing algorithms to address them. 

Previously I worked with Sabre Travel Technologies as a Senior Operations Research Executive, and gained experience in various aspects of data analysis. 

I obtained MSc (Computing) from the University of Reading, UK, and MTech (eGovernment) from the University of Trento, Italy.
