Nihal, a native of Hyderabad, India, graduated from Osmania University with a bachelor’s degree in information technology. While working as a systems engineer at Infosys, Nihal learned from a friend about research opportunities and graduate school options available at the College of Engineering and Information Technology at UA Little Rock. He joined UA Little Rock in 2014 to pursue his master’s degree in information quality where he was introduced to COSMOS and the Blogtrackers tool. Since then, Nihal has become one of our core researchers heading this project. He is currently a fifth-year doctoral student in information science set to graduate in December.
