Soumyabrata Palverfied profile
I am a fourth-year Ph.D. student in the Computer Science Department (CICS) at the University of Massachusetts Amherst advised by Dr. Arya Mazumdar. Currently, I am a visiting scholar at the University of California, Berkeley. Prior to this I graduated from Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur in August 2016 with a Bachelor's degree in Electronics and Electrical Communication Engineering.
My research interests are statistical machine learning, information theory and coding theory. More concisely, I love statistical recovery problems under different settings. Under this big umbrella, I have worked on problems related to random graph theory, high dimensional integration, semi-supervised clustering, trace reconstruction and parameter recovery in mixtures of standard distributions.
