Hi, I am Akshay, I am a graduate student at Cornell University.
I am interested in large scale data mining, machine learning and especially their application to medicine and healthcare. I hope to use my interests to achieve a meaningful impact on the world.
My research focuses on developing novel analytic tools and strategies for mining large healthcare datsets.
I am advised by Prof. Ramin Zabih. I also work closely with Dr.George Shih, and with researchers/radiologists at the Department of Radiology / Weill Cornell Medical College.
You can find a list of my peer reviewed publications on Google Scholar
I own a Google Glass which I purchased through the #ifihadglass program. I am extremely optimistic about future of wearable computing devices and especially Google Glass.
I am also interested in mining large datasets such as the Twitter follower network, Common Crawl project etc.
You can find more information about my projects on my github profile
