Finding creative solutions to everyday problems together with my graduate students.
I study machine learning methods for image processing and biometrics.
Security professionals, data base administrators, software engineers, software developers, professors, teachers, researchers, public servants.
We need to bring more diversity and talent to the field.
I work with various stakeholders, represent my colleagues on Faculty of Sciences and University Diversity committees, present and organize a number of diversity focused events attended by graduate students, faculty members and public.
Three R's: recruitment, retention, recognition.
