My research interests span multi-disciplinary fields involving Societal applications of Machine Learning, Decision-theoretic approach to automated Experimental Design, Bayesian statistical data analysis and signal processing.


Interested about the picture? Autonomous experimental design allows us to answer the question of where to take the measurements. More about it is here...


I addition to the research, I also like to hike, bike, read and play with water color.

Heading for MaxEnt2009, Ole, Mississippi

Today I am heading to Oxford, Mississippi for MaxEnt2009 conference.

This is a week long conference discussing on wide variety of topics on Bayesian Inference and Maximum Entropy Methods in Science and Engineering. Topics range from foundations of probability theory, information theory, and inference and inquiry to astronomy and astrophysics, genetics, geophysics, medical imaging, material science, nanoscience, source separation, particle physics, quantum mechanics, plasma physics, chemistry, earth science, climate studies, engineering and robotics.

It gives a thrilling experience to see all the dignified scientists in the same conference and have an opportunity to present the work.

I will be presenting my work on Spatial Sensititivity Function (SSF) of a point sensor in the conference.

Experimental Guys should find it to be an interesting piece of application of  Bayesian Inference Methods (BIM).

Details will be posted as I put my work on arxiv.

Last year the conference was organized in Sao Paulo,Brazil.
