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 the Lighting Enabled Systems and Applications (LESA) Engineering Research Center. 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 (sensing at extremely low resolutions, wide-area surveillance),
  • 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 Senior Area Editor for 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 …].
