We cannot prove that we cannot prove.
- Myself!
My interests are in the areas of Data Mining and Artificial Intelligence. But actually, I like to work on almost any high impact problem that is simple to state and difficult to solve. Here is my Research Synopsis.

Internships: I usually ignore all requests for internships, as I prefer to work with students on a longer term (at least 1-2 years) towards research publications.

Please find my list of research publications here.

Informal articles:
The Art of Computer Programming
Neural Networks Introduction
Undecidability Theory
Technical Writing (PPT)
Data Mining Introduction
Code of Honour

Software and projects:
Viral Simulator: An online simulator to visualize how a virus may spread across people in different configurable scenarios.
Crystal of Argentium: An adventure game adapted from the classic Eye of the Star Warrior to modern screens
DiscloseNet: For hosting a public institute repository of academic research publications.
Metabolomics (CCPM): Secure repository and analysis pipeline for metabolomics data.

Since 2004 at IIIT Hyderabad, I have taught courses on a wide range of topics :

Data Warehousing & Data Mining
Advanced Topics in Data Mining
Web Data Mining
Artificial Intelligence
Scripting Languages (Unix-shell, Python, Sed, Awk)
Software Technologies (Web, Database, Network and GUI Programming)
Digital Logic Design
Advanced Problem Solving (i.e. Computer Programming, Data Structures, Algorithms)
Human Values

I did my schooling at the Lawrence School, Lovedale, a beautiful historic school in Ooty. I did my B.Tech in Computer Science & Engg from Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University (JNTU) in Hyderabad and completed my Ph.D on the Efficient Discovery of Concise Association Rules from Large Databases (Advisor: Prof. Jayant Haritsa) at the Indian Institute of Science (IISC, Bangalore).
