Our research focuses on multimedia signal processing – to develop efficient, robust, and secure systems to analyze, process, and communicate multimedia information. It is a challenging area as most multimedia applications require handling data at a very high rate, demand a truly realistic user experience, but are often difficult to analyze and interpret.

Our core objective is to develop a research program that balances two goals: (1) to develop prototype systems for the end users with properly-defined measures of success, and (2) to investigate the scientific problems behind by proposing new theories to enhance our fundamental understanding of these problems. From protecting privacy in multimedia to developing multimedia assistive technologies for autism, all our projects aim at bringing radical changes in technology and solving significant societal problems.
