    Projects and Research Interests

    I am working on Machine Learning and Neural Network models to process text, images, audio, and other sensor data. The ultimate goal is to bring multiple of these data types together to build multimodal models for various applications.

    In the BigData@Geo project, we work with climate data, so time series and geospatial data. Our goal is to help the geography department to improve climate modeling using Machine Learning.
