My research interests lie in Machine Learning & Statistics. I am interested in building statistical models which are driven by data and at the same time powered by strong theory. Typical application domains that I am interested in include Natural Language Processing, Brain Imaging, Quantitative Marketing, Computational Social Science & Web Data.

The main projects that I am currently involved in are:

  1. Spectral Learning Methods for Language & Brain Imaging.
  2. Bayesian Methods for Social-TV Analytics.

I spent the summer of 2011 interning with the Machine Learning group at Yahoo! Research, Santa Clara, CA. In past, I have also interned at Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics, Tübingen, Germany and Information Sciences Institute, USC, Marina Del Rey, CA.
