I am a full-time Research Scientist and Director at NAAMII.

I am interested in pushing the boundaries of Machine learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) in both theory and applications with particular interest in applications relevant to Low and Middle-Income Countries (LMICs). I lead a research group TOADS within NAAMII: Transforming glObal heAlth with afforDable and incluSive AI. At TOADS we focus on developing and applying biomedical computer vision methods that are relevant for low-cost medical imaging solutions including smart-phone solutions, and in improving Natural Language Processing (NLP) for Nepali language in order to enable the use of chatbots, voice bots and automated processing of clinical reports for health care applications. My interest lies in identifying and working on clinical translational research projects that are relevant to resource-constrained settings of the least developed world.
