Expert Areas : Machine learning, Artificial intelligence, Data mining, Prediction models

Dr Sachin Ahuja holds a PhD in Data mining. His primary research interests are in the field of educational data mining. Specifically, under data mining he is interested in predictions, designing of survey questionnaires, measuring and comparing the academic performance of students and comparison of traditional teaching with flipped and blended learning models.

Apart from data mining, his teaching interests include big data, relation database and procedural languages. In addition to this, he is heading the Office of Patent Facilitation where he has facilitated inventors from Chitkara University in filing patents by guiding them in licensing & consultancy. Sachin in his free time practices yoga and explores the city for good vegetarian cuisine.
