Team AI


I am interested in collaborating and working with potential researchers who are interested in working on AI. My research interests and activities focus on the AI for decision-making, machine learning methods, non-stationary learning, brain-computer interface, EEG/MEG signal processing, computer vision, and computational intelligence methods for healthcare, businesses, and environment. I work on the development of intelligent systems and practices my skills in the following programming languages: Python, Matlab, and R. So, please feel free to get in touch if you are passionate about any of the above-mentioned topics.

Academic and Industry Collaboration

I also actively collaborate with the leading people in the academia and industries. Here is a list of my existing and past collaborations:

IIIT-Lucknow, India

Jointly working with IIIT-L (Dr Vishal Krishna Singh) on advancing in AI that could be used in solving major global environmental crises–from climate change to agriculture. With advances in machine learning and deep learning, we can now tap the predictive power of AI to make better data-driven models of environmental processes to improve our ability to study current and future trends, including forest-fire, water availability, crop-monitoring, and ecosystems wellbeing. I am interested in bringing AI and ML to play a key role in enhancing environmental decision and policy-making work, by bringing algorithmic solutions to the following themes:

  • Developing forest-fire prediction algorithm using IoT
  • Image analysis for monitoring crops

King-George Medical College, Lucknow, India

One of my key collaboration is with King George Medical College, Lucknow, India with whom we have signed a data-sharing agreement. We aim to develop an accurate computer vision-based diagnostic system for age-group estimation using dental X-ray images and this work is extremely important in forensic dentistry and for various medico-legal purposes. We are working with Dr.Akhilanand Chaurasia who is an Assistant Professor & Consultant King George’s Medical University, India.

Ulster University, Northern-Ireland, UK

East Suffolk and North Essex NHS Foundation Trust, UK
