About Me

Hi, I'm Sonish Sivarajkumar , a Data Scientist and Deep Learning Researcher at IQVIA India and ISP(Intelligent Systems Program) PhD Researcher at University of Pittsburgh, USA. I have completed my Bachelor of Technology Degree from Government Engineering College,Thrissur under APJ Abdul Kalam Technological University , Kerala and have received Research Fellowship from IIT Madras in Deep Reinforcement Learning.

I'm doing my research on innovative applications of Machine Learning in Healthcare and have multiple research papers including 'Automatic Power Factor Improvement based on Deep Learning' on Smart Meters for reduction of power consumption and better voltage stability'. Also, I had been selected for the prestigious Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning programme jointly organised by IIT Madras , IIT Palakkad and ASAP Kerala. I'm a self-directed Engineer and Research scientist, who excels at driving new research ideas from conception and experimentation to production

I'm a technical writer at Medium and my articles are revolved around Machine Learning. I'm Dean of School Of AI , a community to bring AI professionals and students together and was the Chairman of IEEE Computer Science Society at GEC Thrissur.

I'm an innovator, teacher, learner and researcher.
