    About Me

    I'm a PhD candidate in Mechanical Engineering Department at UT San Antonio. I am part of Advance Data Engineering Lab working under the supervision of Dr. Adel Alaeddini. My research interests lie at Graphical Models specially Bayesian Networks, scalable graph mining and time series mining.

    Research Work

    I am currently working on developing a reinforcement learning (RL) based framework for dynamic management (and control) of glucose level for Type 2 diabetes mellitus patients. Find more about the work I've done so far on my research experience page .
