I have been involved in the IT industry and academia for over a decade. Now serving as Assistant Professor in Applied Artificial Intelligence, School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, Media, Design and Technology, University of Bradford, UK. My current research mainly focuses on the design and analysis of advanced computer vision algorithms and applications. My research is focused on Image/Video Processing with emphasis on video summarization for the extractions of semantically significant contents from videos, which can play a vital role in various applications such as surveillance, medical imaging data management, supports of video and movies’ highlight/trailer generation etc. My research interests are in the fields of computer vision, image processing, and pattern recognition with an emphasis on the automated extraction of semantically significant information from medical images/videos. I am an active interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary researcher, publishing refereed journal and conference papers in the diverse fields of medical imaging, video surveillance, image reconstruction and steganography. My research is focused on basic and applied areas such as image and scene segmentation, motion and video analysis, perceptual grouping, shape analysis, visual attention modelling, and medical image perception modelling. I have worked on applications of video summarization, steganography, deep learning and image super-resolution.
