Research Summary

My research interests include signal/image/video processing, biomedical signal processing, statistical modeling, data science, traffic monitoring, computer vision and sensor fusion in autonomous vehicles. More precisely, my research lies at the intersection of computer vision, machine learning and statistical signal modeling with a focus on tackling fundamental machine perception, sensor fusion using learning approaches in order to enable perception system of autonomous vehicles reliably operate in more diverse environments.

Interests

  • Signal/Image/Video Processing
  • Computer Vision
  • Machine Learning
  • Biomedical Signal Processing
  • Statistical Modeling
  • Traffic Monitoring

Research Assistant Positions

  • If you are interested in joining my research group, please send me an email with your CV, indicating research areas of your interest and your research plans (if any), e.g., a research proposal.

  • Candidates should have good programming skills (Preferably in Python/Matlab).

Domestic Students

  • If you are a Domestic Student (i.e. you are Canadian, have Permenant Residency, or have applied and received your Permenant Residency number) then research opportunities have the potential to come with a Teaching Assistantship (TA), a Research Assistantship (RA), and Scholarships (internal and external).

International Students

  • If you are an International Student, funding is different. International Master's students need to get a funded project, no teaching assistantship is given, and scholarships are limited. International PhD students are given a Teaching Assistantship, some scholarships are available, and funding depends on the project and your GPA.
