Welcome to my website! My name is Rajesh Kumar. I am born and raised in India. Currently, I am a Ph. D. candidate in Computer and Information Science and Engineering at Syracuse University, NY. I have 5 years of research experience in applied machine learning, biometrics, and authentication, 2.5 years of experience in IT management and administration, and 1.2 years of experience in software development, maintenance, and customization. I am developing context-aware active/continuous authentication systems for protecting smart devices from unauthorized access. In short, along with many other researchers, I am trying to kill PINs/Passwords. In the future, I plan to develop systems that would convert thought to text. In addition, I plan to contribute in the field of smart and connected health utilizing the forever-evolving power of wearable and data science. My key strengths include applied machine learning, statistical analysis, programming, problem-solving, management, and administration.
