I received PhD in data mining from Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee in 2017 under the supervision of Dr. Durga Toshniwal. I have sound knowledge of various machine learning tools i.e. R, WEKA, MATLAB, Python. I am interested in exploring Big Data Technologies, Machine Learning application in several real world domains. I am quite interested in teaching and research. At present , I am working as a senior lecturer and postdoc researcher with College of IBS, NUST MISIS in Moscow, Russia.
