Automatic object detection in digital images has been a fundamental and important research topic in artificial intelligence (AI), pattern recognition (PR), and image processing. The problem is how to design a program that can partition a digital image in such a way that different objects in the image can be distinguished for more meaningful and intelligent analysis. He has been dedicated to designing connected component labeling (CCL) algorithms for object detection and recognition. He is also interested in CBIR (Content-based Image Retrieval), designing and developing network protocols for different computer
networks like wired networks and sensor networks to enhance their performance.
He likes doing research in graph theory and ubiquitous computing as well.
