    Current Research

    Visual Media Reasoning

    The objective of this project is to automatically extract information and identify the different objects in an image using various image analysis techniques

    Automated Analysis of InSAR Images

    This goal of this project is to develop image analysis techniques to detect bridge settlements, landslide occurrences and sinkhole formation using space-borne interferometric synthetic aperture radar images stacks.

    3D Segmentation of Drosophila Neurons

    This project comprises a body of work that aims at segmentation, morphology generation and statistical morphology comparision towards establishig the neurome.

    Leukocyte Detection

    This project attempts to detect leukocytes in digital video for the purposes of tracking.

    Leukocyte Tracking

    This project attempts to more accurately, effectively, and efficiently collect leukocyte behavior in order to develop anti-inflammatory drugs to treat diseases such as Crohn's disease, heart disease, and multiple sclerosis.

    Ultrasound Denoising

    This project attempts to derive a novel edge detector, the instantaneous coefficient of variation (ICOV), for speckle edge detection; and based on the ICOV, design and implement speckle reducing anisotropic diffusion (SRAD) algorithm for ultrasounic (radar) imagery.

    Vector Field Convolution

    This project attempts to develop a novel method to calculate the external force for deformable models, including snakes, (a.k.a., active contours), and deformable surfaces.

    Multi-Cell 3D Tracking with Adaptive Acceptance Gates

    This project provides a routine to automatically detect and track cells in a 3D space.

    Constrained Shape Manifolds for Shape Based Recognition

    This project defines and analyzes constrained shape manifolds for use in shape based object recognition.

    Human Pose Tracking from Monocular Video

    This project generates a pose configuration manifold and associated manifold charting techniques for kinematics based human pose tracking from monocular videos.
