I am a member of the Information and Data Sciences (IDS) group at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, where I lead the Visual Information Processing (VIP) laboratory. I am also a member of the Center for Information and Systems Engineering (CISE), and a faculty affiliate of the Rafik B. Hariri Institute for Computing and Computational Science & Engineering. My current research interests center around (more details on my Google Scholar profile):

  • computer vision (recognition of events, clutter analysis, human-computer interfaces),
  • visual sensor networks (fisheye camera networks, sensing at extremely low resolutions),
  • cybersecurity (user authentication for natural user interfaces, visual privacy),
  • stereoscopic and 3-D imaging (2D-to-3D conversion, biomedical applications),
  • image and video processing (motion analysis, biomedical and social science applications),
  • multidimensional digital signal processing (sampling theory, irregular sampling).

I am currently a Deputy Editor-in-Chief of the IEEE Transactions on Image Processing and an Area Editor for the EURASIP Signal Processing: Image Communication. In the past, I was a Distinguished Lecturer of the IEEE Signal Processing Society, and I served on editorial boards of various journals and I organized a number conferences [more …].

I have been a consultant for a number of law firms, and among them Orrick, Herrington and Sutcliffe LLP, New York, NY and Washington, DC; Day, Casebeer, Madrid and Batchelder LLP, Cupertino; CA, Kilpatrick Stockton LLP, Atlanta, GA; and Sherr & Nourse PLLC, Herndon, VA. In the past, I collaborated with Imax Corp., EMC Corp., Digital Equipment Corp .
