I am a Senior Lecturer (Associate Professor) in 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 behaviour combining machine learning, computer vision and signal/speech processing.
I received my PhD in Electrical and Computer Engineering 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 was an Assistant Professor at IIT Kanpur, India. Later I moved to the UK to join 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 and Mensa Canada Woodhams 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.
