I am currently a postdoctoral fellow at the Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University, where as a member of the CI2CV lab, I work with Prof. Simon Lucey on modeling the 3D geometry of objects for semantic scene analysis. Before that, I was a postdoctoral associate at the Pattern Analysis and Computer Vision department of IIT, working on video analysis, specifically for crowd anomaly detection and action recognition. I finished my Ph.D. under supervision of Prof. Terence Sim at the School of Computing, National University of Singapore. During my Ph.D., I worked on different computer vision problems, including face analysis, visual object tracking, object detection and action recognition. In particular, my Ph.D. dissertation was about the theory and applications of advanced correlation filters, where I introduced a novel correlation filter for recognizing patterns in images and videos.
