I enjoy applying knowledge informed probabilistic reasoning (mainly Bayesian Reasoning) and Machine Learning techniques to solve challenging problems in sustainability and healthcare. My research interests include Semantic Web, Information Extraction, Internet of Things (IoT), and knowledge representation and reasoning under uncertainty.
Specifically, I work on algorithms that can leverage existing knowledge of a domain (e.g., ConceptNet, domain ontology, dictionaries) to complement structure and parameters of probabilistic models. My thesis work involves extracting events, understanding events, and recommending actions using probabilistic models in domains such as Smart Cities and Healthcare.
