This repository contains the software implementation of most algorithms used or developed in my research. The LaTeX and Python code for generating the paper, experiments’ results and visualizations reported in each paper is available (whenever possible) in the paper’s directory.

Additionally, contributions at the algorithm level are available in the package mlresearch.


A Python distribution of version 3.8 or 3.9 is required to run this project. Due to the computational limitations of the free tiers in CI/CD platforms, currently we cannot ensure compatibility with earlier Python versions.

ML-Research requires:

  • numpy (>= 1.14.6)
  • pandas (>= 1.3.5)
  • sklearn (>= 1.0.0)
  • imblearn (>= 0.8.0)
  • rich (>= 10.16.1)
  • matplotlib (>= 2.2.3)
  • seaborn (>= 0.9.0)
  • rlearn (>= 0.2.1)
  • pytorch (>= 1.10.1)
  • torchvision (>= 0.11.2)
  • pytorch_lightning (>= 1.5.8)

User Installation

If you already have a working installation of numpy and scipy, the easiest way to install scikit-learn is using pip :

pip install -U ml-research

The documentation includes more detailed installation instructions.

Installing from source

The following commands should allow you to setup the development version of the project with minimal effort:

# Clone the project.
git clone
cd ml-research

# Create and activate an environment 
make environment 
conda activate mlresearch # Adapt this line accordingly if you're not running conda

# Install project requirements and the research package
pip install .[tests,docs]
