Chetan Kumar

I am first-year doctoral student in Computer and Information Science at University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth, working under supervision of Dr.Ming Shao. I have completed my master’s in data science and bachelor’s in computer science. I did my masters project on Skeleton Based Action Recognition using Machine Learning techniques. My research interests are in Machine Learning and Computer Vision.

Research Assistant

  • Pursuing research on cross-view action recognition and kinship recognition under supervison of Dr. Ming Shao

University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth Sep 2017 - May 2018

Data Analyst

  • Carried out statistical analysis on Nursing School admissions and course enrollment & results data and used JavaScript and D3 to visualize different patterns and trends for students’ performance against the courses
  • These results effectively helped the school to maintain and redesign their curriculum to get most success rate
  • First time a machine learning model using R language is built for this Nursing School to predict successfulness for each candidate appearing in the upcoming NCLEX-RN (Nursing License Exam) and achieved a significant performance higher than 94%
