I am an Associate Professor and Associate Chairman in the Department of Computer & Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (CEECS) at Florida Atlantic University (FAU) (Boca Raton, Florida). I received my Ph.D. in Computer Engineering from FAU in 2001.
My research interests are in the area of intelligent processing of visual information, which combines the fields of image processing, computer vision, image retrieval, machine learning, and human visual perception. My current interests are mostly focused on: (i) the combination of human computation and machine learning techniques to solve computer vision problems; and (ii) robust methods for visual information retrieval.
- The iOS Programming FAQ page has been updated.
- I’m going to Paris to present our paper / poster “How Well Do You Know Tom Hanks? Using a Game to Learn About Face Recognition” (co-authored by Justyn Snyder and Mathias Lux) at CHI 2013 (April 27 – May 2)
- I’ll be visiting my colleagues at ITEC – Alpen-Adria Universität Klagenfurt (Austria) again in May.
- The book: “Visual Information Using Java and LIRE” (a Morgan & Claypool Synthesis Lecture), co-authored with my colleague Mathias Lux (Alpen-Adria Universität Klagenfurt, Austria) is also available for Kindle.
- My Teaching page has been updated with courses for Summer 2013 and Fall 2013.
