I am a PhD student in the Machine Learning Department at CMU. I am co-advised by Jeff Schneider and Barnabás Póczos. I completed my B.Sc in Electronics & Telecommunications Engineering at the University of Moratuwa, Sri Lanka.
My research interests are primarily in Statistical Machine Learning. I develop methods using both the frequentist and Bayesian paradigms in equal part. This is my cmu website.
Areas and Interests:
Active learning, Bandit problems, Expensive function optimisation, Gaussian processes, nonparametric Statistics, High dimensional nonparametrics
