About me

I am a 3rd year PhD student at School of Computing, National University of Singapore, under the supervision Prof.Dr.Leong Tze Yun and Prof.Dr.Tan Chew Lim, in the domain of artificial inteligence (focused in deep neural networks). I have completed my MSc Health Informatics from Karolinska Institutet (Stockholm, Sweden) in 2013. Prior to this I completed my Bachelors in Biomedical Engineering from Manipal Institute of Technology (Manipal, India).

My research is primarily focused on the usage of 3D deep neural networks for neuroanatomical characterization of Alzheimer's disease [Download report]. I am working towards designing deep neural architectures which can capture the transitioning dynamics (connectivity and anatomical) of different subregions in the brain in cases of Alzheimer's disease. I am also interested in association discovery and structure learning using artificial neural networks.

Previously, I have worked as a research assistant for Prof.Dr.Tan Chew Lim, working on medical imaging in the domain of traumatic brain injuries. This project aimed at predicting the condition of the patient based on CT scan images after a traumatic brain injury. I have also worked on automatic image registration.

Apart from computing, I work as a full stack web developer.
