Amol Salunkhe
PhD Candidate, CDSE

What made you choose UB for your PhD?

I graduated with a MS from UB and have been working with a local company in downtown Buffalo. This coupled with the research in Data Science at UB made it an automatic choice for me for my PhD.

What do you like most about CDSE at UB?

The interdisciplinary nature of the program and the flexibility that it offers is the most appealing attribute of CDSE. It is very rewarding to engage in disciplines that affect the one's area of interest and to be able to gain the breadth along with the depth in your research. 

What are you working on?

I am working with Dr. Varun Chandola on Machine Learning Applications. 

What is your vision for the future?

I would like to work as a Data Scientist in either a research lab or a product company.
