I am working as an Inventor and Cognitive Engineer at IBM T.J. Watson Research Center in Cambridge, MA.
My work at IBM Watson revolves around:
- research and development of machine learning algorithms on electronic medical records.
- ideating novel techniques in the area of cognitive computing for patent mining.
My core research area is in Machine Learning - specifically in Recommender Systems. In the past, I have worked on predicting the next location of a user based on his past tweets and personality traits. Most recently, IBM filed my patent application on recommending questions to the clinician based on patient's medical characteristics and past diagnosis. I am presently working towards implementing this so that it can be incorporated in the upcoming Watson product releases.
Apart from work, I am an avid traveler. My most recent travel was to Alaska during the Christmas holidays in 2016.
