Note: I am looking for strong PhD students to work in the area of ML + Audio/Video analysis. Scholarship information available here. 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. Before joining UofG, I was with the Department of Computer Science, University of Warwick, where I still hold an Honorary Associate Professor position.
My research focuses on developing intelligent computational models to understand, recognize and predict human actions, emotion 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 (ECE 2013) from the University of British Columbia, Vancouver. After graduation, I was a Postdoctoral Fellow at SAIL, University of Southern California, Los Angeles. Before moving to the UK, I spent three years as an Assistant Professor at IIT Kanpur, India.
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.
