Welcome to the webpage of Dr. Punit Rathore!
I am an Assistant Professor at Indian Institute of Science (IISc.), Bengaluru in Robert Bosch Centre for Cyberphysical Systems (RBCCPS) jointly with Centre for Infrastructure, Sustainable Transportation, and Urban Planning (CiSTUP).
Previously I worked as a Postdoctoral Researcher at Senseable City Lab at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, USA for two years and at Grab-NUS AI Lab, Institute of Data Science, National University of Singapore (NUS) for nine months where I worked on urban mobility analytics, driver behavior modeling and spatio-temporal data mining. I received my Ph.D. degree from the Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering, University of Melbourne, Australia in 2019. From July 2011 to November 2014, I was a Researcher in Automation Division, TATA Steel Limited, India where I developed several image processing and machine learning -based real-time systems for manufacturing industries.
My current research interests are: big data cluster analysis, unsupervised learning, urban sensing and analytics, intelligent transportation, spatio-temporal data mining, and Internet of Things.
I am also passionate about developing algorithms to extract useful information from variety of data (time-series, GPS logs, spatio-temporal, images, texts) that may be anomalous, high-dimensional, noisy, unstructured, streaming and heterogeneous. I am particularly interested in ML and AI applications to solve complex real-world problems in areas such as transportation, agriculture, healthcare, infrastructure, robotics, and vision.
Please send me an email if you are interested in my work or collaboration.
