Note: I am looking for strong PhD students to work in the area of ML + Audio/Video analysis. Get in touch, if interested.

I am a Senior Lecturer (Associate Professor) in the School of Computing Science, University of Glasgow, where I am a member of the Glasgow Interactive Systems (GIST) section. My research focuses on developing machine intelligence capabilities to understand human activities and behavior combining machine learning, computer vision and signal/speech processing. I am interested in application domains such as media informatics, healthcare and autonomous vehicles.

I received my PhD from the University of British Columbia (UBC), Vancouver. After graduation, I was a Postdoctoral Fellow at SAIL, University of Southern California (USC), Los Angeles. Subsequently, I spent three years as an Assistant Professor at IIT Kanpur, India. Before joining UofG, I was with the Department of Computer Science, University of Warwick, where I still hold an Honorary Associate Professor position.

I was a recipient of Warwick Global Research Priority award, ICME Outstanding Area Chair award, Mensa Canada Woodhams memorial scholarship and Google Anita Borg memorial scholarship, among other awards and honours.

I am a member of ISCA, IEEE, an elected member of IEEE MSA Technical Committee and an Executive Committee member of AAAC. I am actively involved in the Organizing and Program Committees of several conferences. More about my professional activities can be found here.
