I am currently a scientist in the Signal Processing Department of the Institute for Infocomm Research. I graduated with a Ph.D. from the Department of Electrical Engineering and Compute Science at UC Berkeley in May 2009, and also found time to obtain a certificate from the Management of Technology program. My advisor was Professor Kannan Ramchandran, and I was part of both BASiCS lab and Wireless Foundation. I received my Masters of Engineering (EECS) and Bachelors of Science (ESE) from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in June 2002.
My main area of interest is Signal Processing, and more specifically
image and video processing. I am particularly interested in developing state-of-the-art techniques that can significantly boost video compression efficiency at reasonable computational costs; this includes video coding tools, fast encoder techniques and perceptually relevant encoding. I am also interested in scalability issues in the distribution of video content, and in error-resilience and error-concealment issues in low-latency video applications such as video-conferencing. Here is a list of my publications and projects.
