Prof. Balaram Ravindran

Associate professor, IIT Chennai

An associate professor at the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the Indian Institute of Technology Madras. I completed my Ph.D. at the Department of Computer Science, University of Massachusetts, Amherst. He worked with Prof. Andrew G. Barto on an algebraic framework for abstraction in Reinforcement Learning.

His current research interests span the broader area of machine learning, ranging from Spatio-temporal Abstractions in Reinforcement Learning to social network analysis and Data/Text Mining. Much of the work in my group is directed toward understanding interactions and learning from them.
