Research Interests and Projects:
My interests are in the areas of Machine Learning and Data Mining, Artificial Intelligence, and Efficient Algorithms and my research explores theoretical questions, empirical questions, and applications. Most recently my work has focused on problems in two broad areas: Theory, Algorithms and Applications of Graphical models and Stochastic Planning (aka Reinforcement Learning) and its Relation to Probabilistic Inference.
I currently hold an appointment as an Ajunct Professor in Computer Science at Tufts University.
After serving as a (assistant, associate and then full) Professor at Tufts during 2000-2018, I have moved to
Indiana University, Bloomington.
