I'm a 5th year PhD student in Intelligent Data Exploration and Analysis Laboratory (IDEAL
) at UT Austin
. I am very fortunate to be able to learn from and interact with Professors Joydeep Ghosh
, and Alex Dimakis
. My research is on recovering parsimonious structure in the data, specifically sparsity, and exploiting it for prediction. I am also interested in combinatorial aspects of parsimonious structures, their respective connections to convex optimization, and efficient algorithmic development for inference.
In the past I have worked on problems involving predicting buying propensity based on marketing touches, large scale recommendation systems, Ad Click prediction, and ranking.
