Thiagarajan, Jayaraman (Arizona State University), “Sparse methods in image understanding and computer vision”, Advisor: Prof. Andreas  Spanias (2013)

Image understanding has been playing an increasingly crucial role in vision applications. Sparse models form an important component in image understanding, since the statistics of natural images reveal the presence of sparse structure.

Marcel Nassar (The University of Texas at Austin), “Graphical Models and Message Passing Receivers for Interference Limited Communication Systems”, Advisor: Prof. Brian L. Evans (2013)

Thiagarajan, Jayaraman (Arizona State University), “Sparse methods in image understanding and computer vision”, Advisor: Prof. Andreas  Spanias (2013)

Foteini  Agrafioti (University of Toronto), “ECG in Biometric Recognition: Time Dependency and Application Challenges”, Advisor: Dimitrios Hatzinakos (2011)

As biometric recognition becomes increasingly popular, the fear of circumvention, obfuscation and replay attacks is a rising concern. Traditional biometric modalities such as the face, the fingerprint or the iris are vulnerable to such attacks, which defeats the purpose of biometric recognition.

Matthew C. Stamm (University of Maryland) “Digital multimedia forensics and anti-forensics”, Advisor: Prof. K. J. Ray Liu, 2012
