Warm welcome to my homepage! My broad research interests include Computer Vision, Deep Learning, and Image Processing . I work to make the current technology useful for human beings by analyzing their behavior. I have worked on fusing multiple biometric traits for authentication; analyzing facial expressions using deep learning; measuring the human-vitals (which are, heart rate, breathing rate and blood pressure) using unobtrusive and non-contact human videos; and cross-modal learning. These play indispensable role in security; affective computing; ambient intelligence; and health-care. Currently, I am working in:
  • Improving the efficacy of human vital measurements and human expression understanding.
  • Explore feasibility of human vital parameters and their expressions in authentication; remote and affordable health care like estimating stress or estimating cardiac diseases; fitness monitoring; lie detection to avoid frauds; affective computing applications (like video summarization and commercial advertisement rating); monitoring suspicious intent for psychotherapy; and augmented reality by improving the face synthesis.
  • Explore Cross-modal learning that aims to improve the single modality representations by levaraging unlabeled data from the remaining modalities. Zero-shot learning and Big-data are few examples that follow the similar principle. Furthermore, it is shown that sound classification can be improved by jointly learning the image and sound modalities. Such astonishing improvements inspires me to conduct the research in simultaneously learning the features of multiple modalities.
