Research Projects

I am hired as a Posdoc in the project Underwater Image/Video Analysis. 

Highlights of the Project: 

This project addresses the main challenges faced by computer vision algorithms for underwater image analysis applications. The lack of publicly available underwater data is the major challenge to train very deep neural networks for different tasks such as object tracking, generic object detection, and segmentation.

We are developing a large-scale underwater video analysis dataset for addressing fundamental computer vision applications.

Additional Info

I am serving as Technical Program Committee (TPC) for IEEE GLOBCOM 2022 and ACCV 2022. I am a regular reviewer of IEEE TCBB, IEEE TIP, IEEE TII, ACM TMCCA, IEEE Transactions on Green Communications and Networking, Computer Communications, IEEE GLOBCOM etc.

Currently, I am working with researchers from UCF (USA), MTU (Ireland), Waterford Institute of Technology (Ireland), Sungkyunkwan University (Seoul, South Korea), Sejong University (South Korea) etc.
