Keerat Kaur Guliani

Research Intern

“ I successfully concluded my #internship on #aiinhealthcare at #iiitd with Prof Tavpritesh Sethi MBBS, PhD and Prof Ponnurangam Kumaraguru (PK). I was a part of the #covid19 research group, CoronaActionIndia and started by working on simulating the spread of the virus to estimate projections of the number of cases in the months to follow. This project culminated in a paper (preprint). I then moved on to developing a Vaccine Distribution System to accelerate the process once #covidvaccine enters the market. We primarily employed #reinforcementlearning to do this, and this project culminated with another paper whose preprint can be found here. Most importantly, I have gained a holistic perspective on how to conduct scientific research. I was constantly pushed to take initiative and uphold quality and clear communication in my work, two values which I prize personally. Kudos to the brilliant team comprising of Raghav Awasthi, Mehrab Singh Gill, Arshita Bhatt and Aditya Nagori, who have made me feel at home. It would be a pleasure to work with you guys again. :) It has truly been a wonderful experience, with a lot to take away. Thank you! ”
