I am currently employed as the manager of software systems development at Tornado Medical Systems, a young medical device startup in Toronto. Here I am responsible for the group doing algorithm research as well as those doing product development and scientific programming.
My research passions lie broadly in the realm of computer vision with a HCI/human factors twist. I am focusing my PhD thesis work on extracting hemodynamic information from videos. For my Master's, I designed intuitive image features to help doctors make more accurate diagnoses of melanoma. Apart from medical image processing, I have also dappled with remote sensing (hyper- & multi-spectral) and photogrammetry (3D stereo vision).
I am a Master's student in the Department of Systems Design Engineering at University of Waterloo. I am currently working on 'SAR sea ice image ice and open water classification' under the supervision of Prof. David Clausi.
Research topic: Video Analysis
G. F. Carballo received his B.S. degree in computer science in 1992 and his B.S. degree in astronomy in 1993, from the Universidad de la Republica, Montevideo, Uruguay. He received his Ph.D. degree from the Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden, in geoinformatics.
Neil Cavan completed his undergraduate degree in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Waterloo in 2007. After working as a mechanical designer for two years, he completed his MASc in Systems Design engineering in August 2011 and is currently employed at 2G Robotics.
Huawu Deng received his B.A.Sc. degree from Beijing University, Beijing, China, in 1992, his M.Eng. degree from the Research Institute of Petroleum Exploration and Development, Beijing, China, in 1995, and his Ph.D. from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, in 2001. From 2000 to 2002, he was an Information Technology Analyst for a regional bank in Singapore. He was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow with the University of Waterloo, Waterloo, ON, Canada.
I completed my Ph.D. at the University of Waterloo with the Department of Systems Design Engineering in addition to employment as an Adjunct Lecturer at the university. My research interests include, but are not limited to, Computer Vision, Real-World Modelling and Simulation, Robotics, Corneal Medical Imaging, Statistical Pattern Recognition, Three-dimensional Reconstruction, Artificial Intelligence, and Artificial Life.
Video Tracking in Outdoor Environments Using 3D Models
My research interests are in the area of accelerated computational methods applied to large statistical problems in image processing, computer vision, and remote sensing.
Ahmed Gawish finished his B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees from the Faculty of Computers and Information, Cairo University 2001, 2006 respectively. In June 2011, Ahmed joined the VIP lab as a Ph.D candidate working under the supervision of prof. Fieguth.
Ryan's research interests during his M.A.Sc. in the VIP group were in the design of machine vision algorithms to support real-time processing of defect analysis in plasma display panels (PDPs). Since then, Ryan has over 25 years experience in engineering, R&D, customer support and management. He now works at CCPower, and has worked as the business development director for GE embedded systems in the Asia Pacific region; he also worked in Canada and Japan for a leading supplier to the semiconductor and FPD markets. Ryan speaks Chinese, Japanese, and English and has a strong network of business contacts in Asia and North America. Ryan also holds his BSc in photogrammetry and remote sensing at Wuhan University and has completed financial accounting management training at Harvard University.
My research interests are in the fields of pattern recognition and image processing, applied to biomedical imaging. I am interested in developing image processing algorithms to automate the analysis of medical images, such as those captured using MRI, X-ray or other modalities. Other work is in the area of novel video compression algorithms.
Peter Iles focused his MASc research in the VIP research group on image processing and computer vision. His objective was the ability to automatically count cells in embryonic tissue. Peter received both his undergraduate and graduate degrees in Systems Design Engineering from the University of Waterloo. Peter is now a project manager for vision systems at Neptec Design Group where he develops 3D vision algorithms for automatic target recognition, change detection, scene segmentation, and visual odometry. He is currently the navigation lead for Neptec's Artemis lunar rover prototype. During his time at Neptec he has also taken the role as image analyst for Neptec's Laser Camera System for five Space Shuttle missions, and lead analyst for four missions.
I completed my B.Tech in Electrical Engineering from IIT Delhi and am enrolled as an MASc student in the Systems Design Engineering department. I am working under the supervision of Prof. Paul Fieguth and Prof. A. Wong.
Research interest: Remote Sensing
After completing my MASc degree in the field of detecting emotions in music, I am now an engineer working in video processing at Magnum Semiconductor in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada.
