I studied computer science (BS,MS,PhD) and also have developed software professionally on a variety of topics such as web applications for direct marketing, commodity trading, call-center resource allocation, semantic web and text classification. Including my postdoc that introduced me to neuroscience and fMRI, I have been focusing mainly on life sciences and currently employed as an imaging data scientist in pharmaceuticals industry.
I am very interested in interdisciplinary research (especially in neuroscience and education) and I love learning about things that were generally not included in computer science curriculum. AI has been a life-long interest for me, “Cybernetics” by Norbert Wiener was a great inspiration to me back in college, which was unfortunately during the AI Winter.
My general interests are in bioimaging applications to study health and disease, machine learning tools to reverse-engineer complex systems and cognitive computing and its uses in human-machine collaborative knowledge discovery. Lately, I have been working towards a masters degree in bioimaging. On this blog, I write about stuff that I find interesting, share my experiments with various algorithms and/or application development frameworks.
