My research focuses in the areas of image processing; hyper-spectral sensors, imaging and analysis; machine learning and pattern recognition; biometrics; forensics; computational physiology; and medical imaging. One of the areas that most interests me is designing and developing technology for supporting, confirming and determining human identity in challenging conditions using primarily face images, captured across the imaging spectrum (including ultraviolet, visible, near-infrared, short-wave IR, mid-wave IR and long-wave IR) and secondarily, other hard or soft biometrics including iris, fingerprints, ears and tattoos.
