About Me

I am a PhD candidate in the Computer Learning Research Center at Royal Holloway University of London working with Professor Chris Watkins.

Prior to this I was a research associate in VIDA Lab at NYU Tandon School of Engineering where I worked with Professor Juliana Freire on DARPA Memex and D3M projects. Before joining NYU, I did a summer internship with Microsoft Research and Cloud AI Group in Redmond.


My areas of interest include machine learning, deep learning, reinforcement learning, data mining, distributed computing and data visualization especially applying them to automation of machine learning (AutoML), information retrieval and applications for social good. Most recently I worked on automated generation of data mining pipelines, for the DARPA D3M project, through sequence modeling using a deep neural network and Monte Carlo Tree Search (MCTS)
