About me

Maria E. Ramirez

I am a fourth year Ph.D student exploring different knowledge areas in Computer Science. In particular, my research interests are focused on machine learning, active learning, text mining and information retrieval.

I work at the Machine Learning Lab @ IIT doing research in Active Learning, Machine Learning and related areas.

My current research is focused on fiding a balance between cost and quality of annotation for active learning pool-based algorithm. I work on anytime active learning algorithms to make information gathering more efficient.
