Research Interests
           I am interested in conducting research in the areas of image processing, computer vision, computational intelligence, pattern recognition and machine learning. My special interests are related to biologically inspired ideas which include genetic algorithm, genetic programming, artificial neural networks and their soft-computing applications. Recently I have been involved in image/video restoration using neuro-fuzzy techniques as well as medical image segmentation and nodule detection using computational intelligence techniques.
