Teaching Philosophy: “Application Oriented Learning”. Main focus of this philosophy is to restructure course material in such a way that it contains more real-life example-oriented explanation and demonstration such that students know where and how they can apply knowledge acquired during a course. This is mainly done through practical problem solving and relevant literature surveying. After attending my courses students know how to seek for relevant material for learning. I teach my students how to learning.

Research Area: Machine Learning, Cognitive & Vision Science, Cybernetics, Surveillance & Security, ICT Education
