Harish Haresamudram

I am a first year PhD student with the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at Georgia Institute of Techology, Atlanta. I am advised by Prof. Thomas Ploetz and Prof. Irfan Essa. My work broadly involves learning representations for time-series data and human activity recognition using wearables. Last year (from August 2018 – May 2019), I did my Master’s thesis advised by Prof. Thomas Ploetz and Prof. David Anderson. My work involved developing unsupervised representations for human activity recognition using wearables.

During the last summer, I worked as a Data Science Intern at Asurion and studied deep learning methods to rank photos by quality (aesthestics) and memorability. Previously, I was associated with the Learning and Extraction of Acoustic Patterns Labs, Indian Institute of Science where I worked on speaker verification and spoof detection.
