I'm presently working as a Scientist in the Institute for Infocomm Research (I2R) division of A*STAR, Singapore. I obtained my Ph.D. at the National Univeristy of Singapore, under the joint supervision of Prof. Robby T. Tan and Prof. Loong-Fah Cheong. I've also worked in collaboration with Dr. Lionel Heng from DSO National Labortories, Singapore. My primary research interests include Computer Vision and Deep Learning.

Previously, I worked as a senior design engineer at Freescale Semiconductors, India. I obtained my B.Eng. from Delhi College of Engineering, University of Delhi, India.

Research

My previous research works were dedicated to: (1) Handling low-level vision problems such as depth from stereo and optical flow estimation, and (2) Performing visibility enhancement, under degraded visibility conditions such as nighttime and daytime fog. Related publications are presented below.
