word spotting binarization syriac motion capture image retrieval segmentation

As a scholar in the field of machine vision, I work to develop novel techniques that allow computers to make sense of visual inputs. More specifically, I develop algorithms to extract useful information from images and video. Currently I work primarily with written documents of historical interest, making progress towards the development of better tools to assist scholars in the digital humanities.

Specific areas of focus include word spotting, binarization, and style-based dating of manuscripts.

Earlier in my career I was active in several other areas of computer vision and machine learning. I have made contributions in the fields of markerless human motion capture, image segmentation, content-based image retrieval, and instance-based learning.
