Take advantage of every Opportunity, where there is none, make it for yourself - Marcus Garvey

About Me

I am a Ph.D. student supervised by Dr. Amit P. Sheth - Lexis Nexis Ohio eminent scholar and the director of Artificial Intelligence Institute, University of South Carolina, Columbia, SC. I aim to conduct interdisciplinary research in the areas of computer Science, health care, and psychology. My research interest includes statistical analysis and applied machine learning to solve health care problems, predictive analytics, information extraction, augmented personalized health, internet of things (IoTs), semantic web and semantic cognitive perceptual computing.


Knowledge-enabled health care (kHealth) is an interdisciplinary project to help doctors determine precisely the cause, severity and control of asthma. It aims to alert patient/caregiver to seek clinical assistance in timely manner to better manage asthma and improve their quality of life. The project includes real-world evaluations (i.e. 200 children with asthma) to measure the effectiveness of the approach. It uses patient generated health data (PGHD) via mobile and sensor technologies. kHealth supports the AI-based reasoning approach of semantic cognitive perceptual computing and augmented personalized health (APH). kHealth research encompasses multiple funded projects, the most recent one being "SCH: kHealth: Semantic Multi-sensory Mobile Approach to Personalized Asthma Care", which was funded by the National Institutes of Health in 2016.
