I have joined the Pervasive Media Management Group as a Research Staff Member at the IBM T J Watson Research Center in April 2001 after completing my Ph.D. I will continue to update this site till I can externalize my IBM site. My recent publications are also listed below in the Publications link. At IBM, I continue to work on semantic multimedia understanding and furthering the research that I began at UIUC.

1. Ph.D. Thesis:
This is a NIST Benchmark for measuring the performance of video retrieval systems using semantic queries. This benchmark provides a good opportunity for evaluating algorithms for semantic analysis. I am applying the framework of multijects and multinets to this benchmark at IBM and our participation in the past 2 years has been full of exciting experiments. Details of these experiments have and will continue to appear in our publications some of which are listed in the Publications Section above.
Along with Prof. Edward Chang of UCSB and John Smith, IBM Research, I will present a tutorial at the International Conference on Multimedia
