My research interests include pattern recognition, statistical learning theory, and artificial neural networks. This is also known as predictive learning, where the goal is to estimate a good predictive model from available data. Predictive learning broadly overlaps with data mining, statistical estimation, signal processing, and artificial intelligence. I am interested in both theoretical foundations of statistical learning, and various practical applications.
