Currently, I am a research scholar (writing my Ph.D. thesis). I mainly use an interdisciplinary approach to solve research snags. My current research interest includes coupling machine learning algorithms with satellite imagery to exploit satellite observations (soil moisture, surface roughness, river discharge, and disease prediction). I am also interested in developing innovative algorithms in the field of evolutionary computation (e.g., ECS-NL) and machine learning (e.g., PCA-MM-SVR, LT-FS-ID, AutoML-ID).”
