Research Description

My research in interests include image/video analysis (including texture and shape analysis, segmentation, registration), multimedia databases and data mining (feature extraction, content based access, high dimensional indexing and similarity search), steganography (data hiding in images and video, and their detection), and signal/image processing for bio-informatics. I direct the NSF/ITR funded Bio-Image Informatics Center and NSF sponsered IGERT program on Interactive Digital Multimedia. I am also associated with the interdisciplinary Multimedia Arts and Technology program and the Computer Science Department. The Vision Researh Lab web page gives more details about the current projects in my group.
