I have recently finished my Ph.D. from Computer Science department at Rutgers University in the area of Machine Learning and Computer Vision. I will be joining joining Amazon (Seattle) as a Machine Learning Scientist in the Search and Discovery organization. Prior to my Ph. D. I received my Masters in Electrical Engineering in 2010, and prior to that a B. Tech. in Electrical Engineering from College of Engineering Pune, in 2008.
In my Ph. D research I focus on kernel methods in machine learning, specifically, on the problem of learning kernels for the Structured Prediction problem.
Other topics I am interested in are are; Artificial Intelligence, Learning Theory, Computational Learning Theory, Topological Data Analysis (TDA), Algorithms, Mathematical Optimization and their applications in Computer Vision.
Glad to win the AMEX Machine Learning Challenge held at the NY ML symposium! The goal was to predict fradulent credit card transactions from unsupervised transaction data.
I have defended my dissertation titled 'Supervised Feature Learning via Dependency Maximization'. A big thank you to my committee members - Prof. Ahmed Elgammal, Prof. Pranjal Awasthi, Prof. Tina Eliassi-Rad and Prof. Lee Dicker. I would be joining Amazon (Seattle) as a Machine Learning Scientist in the Search and Discovery organization.
Learning Kernels for Structured Prediction using Polynomial Kernel Transformations
Supervised Dimensionality Reduction via Distance Correlation Maximization
I will be joining as a Machine Learning Scientist Intern at Amazon Seattle, in the Search and Discovery Group until the end of August.
I will be attending MLConf NYC, 2015, in New York City.
I have been accepted to participate in Symposium on Learning, Algorithms and Complexity, at IISC Bangalore, India.
I will be attending the Lens of Computation on the Sciences at Princeton, New Jersey.
