I am currently a research scientist at the Empirical Inference Department of Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems in Tübingen, Germany, working with Prof. Bernhard Schölkopf. You are also encouraged to visit my personal webpage http://krikamol.org for further information about my works and research. I also write an academic blog occasionally about machine learning at http://krikamol.org/mlblog.
My research interest lies in use of machine learning techniques to advance our understanding of real-world phenomena and to solve various difficult problems, e.g., classification and regression problems. I am currently employing kernel methods to deal with probability distributions. The list below highlights some of my research interest.
I am also coordinating the Empirical Inference Journal Club (EIJC). Please visit http://krikamol.org/misc/eijc/ for more information.
Support Measure Machines
A generalization of support vector machines to a space of probability measures.
Domain Generalization and Prediction
How to take knowledge acquired from an arbitrary number of related domains and apply it to previously unseen domains?
Stein's Phenomenon in Reproducing Kernel Hilbert Space
Investigate a controversial phenomenon known as "Stein's phenomenon" in the reproducing kernel Hilbert space (RKHS).
