Field of research/teaching

Machine Learning

What is your research focus in a bit more detail? Is your current research path what you always had in mind for yourself, or has it evolved somewhat? If so, how/why?

Shantanu’s research interests lie in the field of statistical modeling and machine learning. His research activities are focused on developing semisupervised methods under data constraints for which standard approaches lead to biased estimates. His recent work has addressed issues in binary classification and its evaluation that arise due to absence of labeled examples from one of the classes (positive-unlabeled learning), incorrectly labeled examples and bias in the labeled examples. His research has been applied to many bioinformatics problems and mass spectrometry data.
