I’m attached to the Machine Learning Research Group, School of Engineering, University of Guelph, ON Canada headed by Graham Taylor. I am currently working on Deep Learning Multimodal Deep Learning with a focus on fusion structure optimization
Prior to joining the University of Guelph, I used to be an Associate Professor at the School of Computer Sciences, Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM) from 2003-2015. My background is rather diverse encompassing the fields of Computer Science, Mechatronics Engineering, and Industrial Technology (Instrumentation and Quality Control).
My past research projects include Visual Positioning of Robots using Neural Networks, Segmentation of Multiple Sclerosis Lesions in MRI, Context in Object Class Recognition, Kernel Methods in Machine Learning and Ensemble Classifiers for Object Class Recognition, Video Tracking and Target Recognition in Synthetic Aperture Radar Imagery.
I am a proponent of the Open Source Software Model and I’ve been using GNU/ Linux since 1998.
My other passion is photography .
