Research

Research Experience Details:

My Ph.D research is in the area of Algorithms particularly “distance-related problems in graphs”. My Ph.D. thesis entitled: “An Algorithmic Study of Some Distance-Related Problems in Graphs”. The goal of my research is to understand the interplay between the problems and graph properties, and to identify relationships that lead to efficient algorithms.

I am also working on frontiers of “Artificial Intelligence research with Big Data and Machine Learning”, i.e., datasets humans can only mine by training machines and making them perform human-like tasks. The research work on this area can be observed in all my recent published works.
