Hello, I am Harsha Kokel, a Ph.D. student working with Prof. Sriraam Natarajan and the StARLinG Lab at University of Texas at Dallas. My research focuses on leveraging domain knowledge to improve generalization in various different AI/ML approaches.
I am interested in knowledge-based systems that learn not only from data but also from the knowledge about the domain. This additional knowledge could either be the structure of the domain like a graphical model, or some qualitative information like monotonicty or synergy, in sequential decision making it could also be action schemas (a planner). Since I am interested in involving human experts in the learning process, I am also interested in explainable AI.
