Research and Practice Interests
My research centers mainly around machine learning theory and applications. It includes development of algorithms for learning from imbalanced data, context dependent computing, supervised and unsupervised learning, feature selection, support vector machines, quantum computing and learning. At the application level I am interested in image understanding, brain computer interface, and malware detection.
I teach a wide range of Computer Science courses including Intriduction to Computer science (CS-I), C++ programming for computer engineering, Discrete Mathematics, Data Structures, Design and Analysis of Algorithms, Programming Languages, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Adanced Machine Learning (Kernel methods).
