Senior Member, IEEE
I received Ph.D. and M.S. degrees in Computer Science in the fields of Computer Vision and Machine Learning from Colorado State University , and B.E. degree in Electronics and Communications from National Institute of Technology, Srinagar, Kashmir. From July 2015 - 2017, I was an Assistant Professor of Computer and Information Science at Harrisburg University, Harrisburg, PA and from 2014 - July, 2015, I was an Assistant Professor of Computer Science & Engineering at the National Institute of Technology, Srinagar. I have also worked as a Software Engineer at Hewlett-Packard, and Wipro. My research interests center on improving and design of systems employing the use of Computer Vision, Machine Learning, and Data Science algorithms.
Most existing image-to-image translation models assume that all the domain have either multiple modalities or only one modality. However, many domains have a many-to-one relationship between two domains. We are working on a new asymmetric framework to improve existing deep generative models on many-to-one image-to-image translation.
Robot navigation in a static environment is a solved problem, however, very often the surroundings are dynamic and the robots would need to interact with a changing environment. We are currently working on such a system in a busy building to help a robot not only navigate its way but interact with its environment along the parth.
