Laksshman Sundaram


I am a  Master’s student in Computer Science at University of Florida.Prior to joining UF, I worked in the silicon valley for three years. My research interests are in applying machine learning and deep learning algorithms for primarily solving genomic interpretation and computer vision problems. Starting the spring of 2017, I am going to work as a Deep Learning Engineer/Researcher at Illumina, under Dr. Kyle Farh.

Research Interests : Machine Learning, Deep Learning, Computational Biology & Computer Vision.
