My research centers around Deep Learning and its application in Computer Vision. Specifically, the research problem I am currently focusing on is: How to make current deep models interpretable (Explainable-AI) and "compact" enough (Scalable AI) for real time client side applications.
I am a first year PhD student at VIP lab - University of Waterloo and Machine Learning Research Group - University of Guelph where I am supervised by Dr. Alexander Wong (UWaterloo) and Dr. Graham Taylor (UGuelph/ Vector Inst.). Before this, I completed my MASc. in WAVE lab & VIP lab at University of Waterloo, where I worked with Dr. Steven Waslander and Prof. David Clausi.
