Research Interests

My research is primarily related to multi-scale representation and robust statistical estimation applied to developing graph based methods for unsupervised learning. I currently focus on problems that are in the union of network analysis and graph signal processing, and their application to zero shot learning and computational biology.

Education

I completed my PhD in the Computer Science Department at the University of Southern California. My thesis advisor was Professor Gerard Medioni with whom I was working on developing a global framework for Tensor Voting, and on Manifold Learning. I also collaborated with Professor Antonio Ortega on developing a new framework for Manifold Denoising using tools from Graph Signal Processing.
