Jugal Kalita's Research Interests
AREAS OF INTEREST
- Artificial Intelligence: I am interested particularly in natural language
understanding and machine learning.
NLP is my primary area of research.
- Bioinformatics: I am interested in modeling and simulation of biological processes, applications of machine learning to problems in bioinformatics and computational biology, information retrieval and natural language processing in the context of biomedical domains
- Information Retrieval: Search engines, indexing, phrase search, information retrieval from text.
- Computer Security: I am interested primarily in applications of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning to issues in computer security such as Intrusion Detection. If you want to pursue research in this area, a major component has to be AI, Machine Learning, NLP, etc.
- If you are a student at any level--Ph.D., MS or Bachelors--and are interested in pursuing research with me, feel free to send me an email or stop by. But, please read below.
- If you want to pursue research with me, here is something you must do so that we work together well, and you can be successful in your research.
- If you are already at UCCS, you must have taken at least one class with me (if not more), and must have done well, i.e., you must have obtained a grade of A or A- in the class. If you haven't taken a class with me, we can still start talking about research, but I'll expect you to take at least one class with me and do well in it. I want you to take classes with me so that you have developed a solid background to do research in AI, NLP or Machine Learning, or applications of these topics in domains in which you are interested.
- You may be able to take an independent study with me in lieu of taking a class on a topic related to natural language processing, artificial intelligence or machine learning, and do a good job and get an A.
- If you are not at UCCS and are applying for our MS or Ph.D. program, I would like to see that you have taken at least one class in AI, Machine Learning or NLP in your home institution and received a good grade. And, then you should take classes with me once you are UCCS and receive good grade.
