Professional Background

Statistical learning, data mining and neural network systems

Research Interests

My research interests include pattern recognition, statistical learning theory, and artificial neural networks. This is also known as predictive learning, where the goal is to estimate a good predictive model from available data. Predictive learning broadly overlaps with data mining, statistical estimation, signal processing, and artificial intelligence. I am interested in both theoretical foundations of statistical learning, and various practical applications.
