Ms Nishadi Kirielle

I am a research enthusiast in Data Science with a passion to help people integrate data with scalable solutions. 

I am a PhD student at the Australian National University where my research topic is on the development of efficient and scalable algorithms to link records of personal data. Currently, I am working on modeling the record linkage problem with graphs to exploit the relationships between records and propagate information between linking decisions to obtain high-quality links with unsupervised learning techniques. Due to the often very large data sets used in record linkage, blocking techniques, as well as temporal and geographical constraints, often need to be incorporated to reduce the problem space. Furthermore, I plan to investigate how to best parallelize the linkage algorithms and techniques I am developing in my PhD research.
