Teaching / Work Experience
I did my Ph.D. from University of Hyderabad, and my research area is Machine Learning. As part of my Ph.D., I have worked on Nearest Neighbor Search Problem and proposed two algorithms which are pivot or reference point based algorithms for improving the speed of Nearest Neighbor Search. I have studied different dimensionality reduction techniques for processing high-dimensional data and to find hidden patterns in the data. In order to improve the pattern recognition task, we need to reduce the dimensionality to a sufficient and comfortably small. We have proposed two variants for IRP-K-means algorithm for improving clustering accuracy in the reduced feature space, and demonstrated this by conducting experiments on various low-dimensional and high-dimensional data sets. In another chapter of my thesis, we have proposed a projection matrix generation by using a small sample from the given data. We have tested this proposed method by varying reduced dimension, and also by varying the sample size taken for constructing the projection matrix. I have worked in a collaboration project with ANURAG, DRDO and University of Hyderabad. As part of this research project, we have developed an algorithm for Quilt PCA, which addresses mainly two issues: one is selecting then number of cluster centroids (K), second one is selecting initial K centroids from the given data itself. I was a Project Fellow at ANURAG DRDO/ University of Hyderabad from 2017-2018 (1.5 Yrs) Worked as an Assistant Professor in CSE Dept. Ramappa Engineering College, Warangal from 2008-2010 (2yrs). Worked as an Assistant Professor in CSE Dept. Vivekananda Institute of Technology & Science (VITS II) Karimnagar from 2006-2007 (1 Yr). I was a Teaching Assistant to Prof. Vineeth Padmanabhan Nair, School of Computer and Information Sciences, University of Hyderabad in 2013 (6 months). I was a Senior Research Fellow in School of Computer & Information Sciences, University of Hyderabad, from 2012-2016. I was a Junior Research Fellow in School of Computer & Information Sciences, University of Hyderabad, from 2010-2012. Publications: 1.
