Overall GPA - 3.72/4.0, Major GPA - 4.0/4.0

Research Interests
Areas -  Machine Learning, Computer Vision, Robotics
I am inspired by the ease we humans can analyze, understand, and learn from visual information. I want to work on building models that emulate human visual system. That is one of the major reasons why I am interested in Feature Learning.

Courses taken
There is a lot restriction placed on an undergraduate student of what courses he can take depending on the degree. I think Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC's) like Coursera, Udacity provide an opportunity to challenge the traditional system. For me, the major advantage of MOOCs is that it allows students to study what they really want.

I have taken following courses on Coursera and online:

I am also planning to complete following courses before starting graduate school:

Advanced Courses in AI at Mississippi State University
  • Data Analysis and Visualization
  • Neural Networks - Graduate Course for credit  ( syllabus) 
  • Directed Individual Study - Dr. Song Zhang   on " Deep Learning Methods"

Online Repository

Contains lot of the code that i have written during my machine learning class and ufldl tutorials.
