Computer Vision, Signal Processing

Ph.D. (Electrical and Computer Engineering)

​I received my Ph.D. from National University of Singapore (NUS) in 2016, focusing on Computer Vison. I was awarded the M.Sc. in Signal Processing by Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore, in 2011, and the B.E. in Electronics Engineering by National University of Sciences and Technology in 2009.

I joined NUST as an Assistant Professor at the Department of Electrical Engineering, College of Electrical and Mechanical Engineering (CEME), in March 2017. Previously, I have taught at PN Engineering College, NUST, in the capacity of Laboratory Supervisor from Sep – Dec 2009, as a Graduate Student Assistant at NUS from Aug 2011 to May 2014, and as a full-time Teaching Assistant at NUS from Jun 2014 to Nov 2016, where I had the pleasure of interacting with a globally diverse student body.


​My fundamental research interests lie in the following areas and applications of computer vision:

Scene understanding (recognition, scene layout estimation, part discovery)

Stereo and multi-view vision for 3d scene recovery

Deep learning for computer vision

Visual SLAM for augmented reality and robotics

Vision for robotics (detection, recognition, segmentation, obstacle avoidance, etc.)
