The Answer

I would love to create a Transformer and find Alien life
Well Someday Where is the pic? Where is the pic?

I am a PhD student in University of Texas at Dallas (UTD) advised by Prof. Sriraam Natarajan as a part of the Statistical Relational Learning (StARLinG) group. I completed my MS degree from Indiana University Bloomington in 2015 with a GPA of 3.84/4 with my master's thesis focused on creating novel features from galaxy images for spiral shape detection under Prof. David Crandall. My Bachelors was completed from Sir MVIT in Visvesvaraya Technological University with an aggregate of 79.82% along with a gold medal and an academic excellence award. I work in the general area of Machine learning and artificial intelligence and I am especially interested in development and application of Machine Learning algorithms for medical domain. I am currently working on predicting drug-drug interactions and adverse drug events from SMILES strings and structural properties of the drugs themselves. I am also looking at machine learning methods for early detection of Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease. Here is my current resume .
I also write short stories as a hobby and am also an avid reader. I am currently reading Understanding Machine Learning: From Theory to Algorithms by Shai Ben-David and Shai Shalev-Shwartz. I am also reading A Pale Blue Dot by Carl Sagan.

  • I have received a travel award to attend the IEEE/ACM CHASE conference in Washington D.C. in September.
  • Our work on predicting/discovering drug-drug interactions using heterogeneous similarity measures accepted at IEEE/ACM CHASE.
  • Our work on approximate counting using hypergraph accepted at AAAI.
