Data Analytics 101

First steps into CS research and Data Science

About Us

My name is Soumyadeep Roy. Currently, I am working as a Junior Research Fellow and an MS student in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at IIT Kharagpur, West Bengal, India. I work under the supervision of Prof. Niloy Ganguly and Prof. Shamik Sural.

I am currently also a part of Complex Networks Research Group(CNeRG), IIT Kharagpur


Research Interest

Health Informatics, Information Retrieval, Natural language Processing, Machine Learning

My current research deals with the use of Information Retrieval and Natural Language Processing techniques on publicly available clinical databases like, PubMed, Embase, Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews to develop end-to-end systems that will address the current challenges in Clinical Decision Support and improve the state-of-the-art in Healthcare delivery. Currently, I am trying to develop methods to assist the clinicians to practice Evidence-Based Medicine by developing domain-specific information summarization systems.

My detailed research profile is provided here.

I have been working on Machine Learning problems for the last 2 years. Through this page, firstly, I will share my experience on how to start working on real-life datasets. I have worked in projects as diverse as Weather, Email, Event Extraction from a text, Emotion mining, Twitter and now on Public Health. I am no expert, but I feel it will really you to get started.

Secondly, I will share resources and news with the aim of making Computer Science research accessible and understandable by the general population. As of now, I will be targeting the undergraduates and those starting their career in research like me.

Some of my past projects range from scraping dynamic websites using Python to data cleaning using “dplyr” in R. Extensive preprocessing with climate data from NOAA in R and beginner Python projects from Automate the Boring Stuff With Python are available with full documented codes in my Github account. You can take a look, if interested.

Please mention the topic about which you want me to write or any random question you have in the Contact section. I will surely get back to you within a week.
