I am looking for *two* enthusiastic, creative, hard-working graduate students (Ph.D. or M.A.Sc.) interested in working with me in the areas adaptive learning systems for biometrics (DnD Canada, NSERC-CRD, NSERC Strategic), sensor networks and distributed signal processing (ORF), visual surveillance (ORF), and signal processing for the digital camera pipeline (NSERC-Discovery) .
If you are interested to join my research group, please read my recent research papers, and contact me by sending an email (in plain ascii text) indicating the research area of interest to you, why you are interested, what research you have done in the past. List your research publications (if any). A successful candidate should be able to apply and study at the competitive graduate ECE program at the University of Toronto (Communications - Signal Processing), have excellent background in mathematics and systems, and strong analytical skills. A strong track record in research with publications in conferences and journals in our area of research is a definite plus.
Note: Please do not contact me about admissions questions or ask me to evaluate your application for admission or financial support. I will respond to an email only if I am interested in the student's background. Otherwise, please assume that I am not interested.
Note: There are a number of openings for post-doc students and research associates in the Multimedia Laboratory. You must have a Ph.D. from one of the top research universities (ECE/CS) in North America or Europe, a high-quality dissertation with an excellent set of publications, professionally mature written and oral communication skills, and seeking a post-doctoral position to pursue new research avenues and not just follow up on your previous work.
