PhD Theses

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.

Angshul Majumdar (University of British Columbia), “A Sparsity Based Approach Towards Fast MRI Acquisition”, Advisor: Prof. Rabab K. Ward, 2012

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a safe medical imaging modality that can acquire high quality scans. However, MRI has a relatively long acquisition time. Reducing the MRI data acquisition time had been a challenge to researchers for the last two decades. In this thesis, the author proposed Compressed Sensing based techniques to speed-up MRI scans.
