I’m a first year PhD candidate in the multimedia security group. My research interests include image forensics, computer vision, and machine learning.

At the moment I don’t have any open projects but if you are interested in a thesis on one of the topics listed above, please don’t hesitate to drop me a note.

Low-quality image of South Carolina license plate on car rear. The low resolution and the presence of additive noies make it nearly impossible to decipher the license number.

Forensic investigations often have to contend with extremely low-quality images that can provide critical evidence. Recent work has shown that, although not visually apparent, information can be recovered from such low-resolution and degraded images. We developed a CNN-based approach to decipher the contents of low-quality images of license plates.
