Soujanya Poria completed his PhD in Computer Science from the University of Stirling, UK. The primary focus of his PhD research was to understand sentiment in multimodal data. He received his BEng in Computer Science from Jadavpur University, India, in 2013. In the same year, he received the best undergraduate thesis and researcher award from Jadavpur University and was awarded Gold Plated Silver medal from the University and Tata Consultancy Service for his final year project during his undergraduate course. Soujanya is now a research fellow at NTU Temasek Laboratories, where he is now conducting research on aspect-based sentiment analysis in multiple domains and different modalities. Soujanya has over 1000 citations on Google Scholar and h-index of 20. According to a recent article published in Information Processing Management, Soujanya is one of the 25 most productive authors in the field of Sentiment Analysis since 2000. Soujanya has served as a program committee member at several top tier conferences e.g., IJCAI 2017, EMNLP 2017, ACM-MM 2017, ICMI 2017, IJCNN 2017, IJCNLP 2017 etc..
