I am currently a PhD student (Fall 2008 - present) at School of Computing in University of Utah. My advisor is Prof. Hal Daume III. I completed my M.S. in Computer Science in Spring 2008. I did my undergraduate (Bachelors of Engineering) from Birla Institute of Technology & Science (BITS), Pilani, India.

My research interests are in Machine Learning in particular kernel methods, learning with auxiliary information (semi-supervised learning, multi-task learning) and information geometry.

My other (long term) research interests include understanding human cognition process through mathematical models. Personally, I believe that it is possible to develop a common mathematical framework for all aspects of cognition that will explain empirical phenomena in the major areas of cognitive science - including vision, memory, reasoning, learning, planning, and language. My interests include building such mathematical and probabilistic models.
