CIVA Lab conducts research on computational aspects of computer vision, image processing, visualization, algorithm parallelization, high performance computing, machine learning and mathematical methods for image & video understanding. CIVA's research has been funded by DoD, NIH, NSF, NASA and NGA.

Research focus

The broad focus of my research has been on developing novel methods in the area of Artificial Intelligence, Geospatial & Remote Sensing, Machine Learning, Computer Vision, and Autonomous Systems & Robotics. I especially enjoy working on problems that span the boundaries of multiple fields. My passion is to bridge the gap between intelligent systems research and practical solutions to real daily-life problems.
