I am a PhD student in Computing and Information Science at Rochester Institute of Technology. I am working as Graduate Research Assistant under supervision of Professor Anne Haake . I am currently involved in a research project on improvement of Gene Regulatory Networks Reconstruction leveraging Metabolic Simulation . I am currently working to develop a new prior for gene regulatory networks based on metabolic simulations and evaluate to what extent this prior can diminish statistical problems posed by reconstructing large-scale regulatory networks from realistically-sized expression array datasets.


In November 2014, I graduated with Distinction of Bachelor's degree in Computer Engineering from Institute of Engineering, Tribhuwan University, Nepal.


Research interests: Machine Learning, Deep Learning, Data Science
