Rahul V is an PhD candidate (ERP) at CSA, IISc along with working in GE Healthcare. His day job is to tinker with machine learning algorithms to solve medical imaging problems, evenings for resigning to the fact that his tinkerings have underperformed the baselines and hopes he can enjoy academic delights in the night. He is broadly interested in understanding why deep learning algorithms work, and if they can indeed work well with noisy and fewer samples.
