Research Overview

My research interests are mainly (application-driven) machine learning and computational statistics. My research mission is to understand patterns and phenomena observed in real-world data by devising probabilistic and statistical machine learning methodologies.

Current Research

Currently I am working on the following application domains and inferential machine learning algorithms:
  1. Health care data.
  2. Non-intrusive load monitoring (energy disaggregation).
  3. Spectroscopy data.
  4. EEG and fMRI.
  5. Variational inference
  6. Markov chain Monte Carlo
  7. High-dimentional inference
  8. Variance reduction
  9. Intractable likelihood models
  10. Bayesian matrix factorization

Teaching Responsibilities

I am teaching the following courses (20/21):

  • CS4048/5059 Robotics
  • CS5062 Machine Learning
  • CS551J Knowlege Representation and Reasoning
