Soumil Hooda


Hello! I'm a senior at the Department of Physics and Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering at BITS Pilani Hyderabad.

My goal is to build a generalised world weather model, to be able to forecast thermodynamic profiles and extreme weather events to absolute certainity. I am also very interested in the idea of a general autonomous agent, and would like to devote some years to researching the same.

At present, my research focuses on usecases of deep learning models in healthcare applications, where I have been working on furthening 12-lead ECG based atrial arrhythmia detection.

Did I tell you? I am also working on building a comprehensive weather risk management system for India. I believe the Indian market is highly underserved and have developed multiple products such as temperature-based derivative contracts, temperature-energy quanto contracts, rainfall-agriculture quanto contracts and wind/solar energy swaps. I have also been actively researching securitization for government backed insurance schemes such as the PMFBY and WBCIS.

I've been fortunate to collaborate with some wonderful researchers including Prof. Manik Gupta, Prof. Rajesh Tripathy and Dr. Satya Prakash Ojha.
