Hi, I'm a 6th year PhD student at LTI. My advisor is Jaime G. Carbonell
My thesis defense date is March 15th, 2010. The title of my thesis is "ProActive Learning: Towards Cost-Sensitive Active Learning with
Multiple Imperfect Predictors".
Here is my Resume
My research interests are proactive learning, active learning, rank learning, semi-supervised learning, and information retrieval in general.
I mainly work on proactive and active learning algorithms and their applications in different areas including classification, and rank learning.
Recently, I have become interested in unsupervised and accurate learning for classification in the absence of gold standard labels.
In the summer of 2008, I was a research intern at the Text Mining, Search and Navigation group at Microsoft Research.
My mentors were Krysta Svore and Chris Burges.
I have been honored with the Best Presentation Award at the Student Research Symposium at LTI 2007
