I am now working as a research associate in Center for Computational Imaging & Personalized Diagnostics, Case Western Reserve University, US. My research interest includes biomedical image analysis, computer vision and pattern recognition. My current project is on the digital histological image analysis.

From 2008 to 2013, I was doing my doctoral studies in the University of Alberta, under the supervision of Dr. Mrinal K. Mandal at the Dept of Electrical and Computer Engineering.
