I am Rachit Bansal, a pre-doctoral researcher at Google Research India. I am broadly interested in the areas of interpretability and robustness for natural language processing. Previously, I was an undergraduate student at the Delhi Technological University.

Over the past few years, I walked my first baby steps as a researcher owing to some wonderful people and collaborations. I pursued my bachelor’s thesis research with Prof. Yonatan Belinkov at the Technion, Israel. Before that, I was a research intern at Adobe’s Media and Data Science Research Lab, where I worked on commonsense reasoning for large language models. I also collaborated with Danish at LTI CMU for over a year to understand and evaluate model explanations in NLP. During my sophomore year, I spent a wonderful summer devising machine translation techniques for extremely low-resource languages as a part of the Cuneiform Digital Library Initiative (CDLI), University of Oxford, advised by Prof. Jacob Dahl and Dr. Niko Schenk.
