Prem Raj Adhikari

I successfully defended my doctoral dissertation at the Department of Information and Computer Science (ICS) in Aalto University School of Science on November 21, 2014.
After graduation, I moved out of Aalto University and hence these pages are not updated. Meanwhile, you can hop onto my personal webpage at www.premraj.me where I will try
to update my recent avenues and endeavours. You can contact me in my alumni email address: prem.raj.adhikari [at] alumni.aalto.fi. Other contact points are: Twitter or Linkedin.

While at ICS, I was a member of the Parsimonious Modelling Research Group in HIIT and ALGODAN Center of Excellence. D.Sc. (Tech.) Jaakko Hollmén took the burden of advising and Professor Samuel Kaski of supervising my research. My research focused on probablistic modelling in cancer genomics, especially on multiresolution modelling of chromosomal aberrations patterns in cancer. My research was funded by Hecse graduate school, HIIT, and Finnish Center of Excellence ALGODAN.

Before the doctoral degree, I also completed my International Master's Degree Programme in Machine Learning and Data Mining (Macadamia) from Aalto University in December 2010.

Research and other interests

I'm interested in probabilistic modelling and multiresolution 0-1 data especially the multiresolution mixture models. Generically speaking, I am interested in the Machine Learning and Data Mining Algorithms and their use in the analysis of large data sets. My interests also includes the application of Machine Learning algorithms for solving problems in bio-informatics and computational biology.

Some of the more specific fields of interest are: machine learning, data mining, probabilistic graphical models, bio-informatics, and scale space methods. Hobbies include listening music, reading, sports and photographing nature & its wonderful people.
