Dr Pulkit Sharma undertook his doctoral research in the School of Computing and Electrical Engineering at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) in Mandi, India, submitting in 2017. This followed his M.E. degree in Electronics and Communication Engineering from Panjab University, India, in 2012.
Pulkit's doctoral work focused on the use of sparse representation-based signal processing to derive features for speech recognition and footprint reduction of speech synthesis systems. During his PhD, he demonstrated the effectiveness of deep sparse representations to derive discriminative features for speech recognition.
Pulkit joined the Computational Health Informatics Lab to develop systems based on machine learning for analysing data from electronic healthcare records, in collaboration with the Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
