I am a Research Associate (RA) or a postdoctoral researcher at the School of Computer Science and Informatics in Cardiff University. I am working with Dr. Steven Schockaert. Before coming here, I was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Department of Systems Engineering and Engineering Management (SEEM), The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK), where I spent six years (PhD. study included). I have received my PhD. degree under the supervision of Prof. Wai Lam at The Chinese University of Hong Kong. Here is my old homepage. I have completed my Bachelors study from the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Sikkim Manipal Institute of Technology, India. My undergraduate internal thesis supervisors were Dr. Tejbanta Singh Chingtham and Prof. Mrinal Kanti Ghose. My external undergraduate thesis supervisors were Mr. Fredi B. Zarolia at Tata Steel Limited, India and Dr. Marimuthu Muruganant (Cantab.). Immediately after my Bachelors, I spent one year at Tata Steel's Research and Development Division where I was mentored by Dr. Marimuthu Muruganant. This tenure was the turning point in my career, when I got interested in research. Here is a brief description about what I did there. Here is my CV, which I regularly update.



[Research Interests]

I currently work in the following research topics:

In the past, I have worked on the readability problem in information retrieval. I have also worked on document summarization and cluster load balancing.



[Publications]

Theses:

Undergraduate [First Pages] [Report] [Presentation]

Doctorate [PDF] [Presentation] – Note that some results in the thesis and papers published online might vary. This is because of the differences in the parameter settings, data prepossessing, experimental settings, different training/validation/testing splits, etc. In addition, we refined a few models before final publication.

[Professional Activities]

I review articles from the following journals and conferences.

SIGIR, WWW, TKDE, ICDM, PAKDD, KDD, KBS, TALIP, etc.



[Other Interests]

Apart from research, I also spend some time on numismatics. Over the years, I have collected several rare ancient and modern coins. I spend my free time in deciphering them and learning the script inscribed on them. This is why I am interested in history too especially history of the Mughal Empire in India.
