Hi! I'm Suryo!

I am a Ph.D. student at Penn State, working under the guidance of Mahanth Gowda on machine learning and sensing technologies.

I received my Master of Science degree in Computer Science from The University of Texas at Arlington. I worked my MS thesis under the guidance of Dr. Manfred Huber on feature learning and preemptive estimation of performance for KNN classifiers and regressors.

Before joining UTA, I was first an undergraduate student, and then a Research Associate at PESIT Bangalore South Campus (then affiliated to Visvesvaraya Technological University, now PES University) where I worked with Dr. Snehanshu Saha on a broad range of topics in machine learning and its applications to astronomy, finance, and scientometrics. My research interests are broadly in the areas of machine learning and intelligent systems. I am proficient in C, C++, and Python, and have a good amount of knowledge about a lot of other languages and programming tools such as Verilog, SQL, Java, MATLAB, Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Beagle Bone, Processing Language, LaTeX, Javascript, HTML/CSS, Tensorflow, numpy, scikit-learn, etc., and various hardware platforms, but I use them on the basis of my needs in my current projects or work. I love the philosophy of open source and have contributed to ensmallen, a fast and flexible mathematical optimization library, written in C++.

On a less academic note, I am a musician and enjoy playing the guitar! I also try to paint and do different kinds of artsy stuff from time to time.


Here is a list of my published papers, and here's the link to my Google Scholar page!
