Research Interests:

My interest is in statistical models and algorithms for computer vision and speech recognition. Emphasis is on stochastic modeling of the appearance of visual and acoustic objects and their configurations in complex scenes. I also work on modeling the high level cortical processing of visual input – neural network models for learning object representations, detecting the objects in real images and classification among multiple object classes. Finally, I am interested in studying the relationship between elements of the network models and known biological functions, building on the interaction between the statistical/algorithmic study of vision and research on the biological mechanisms.
