    My research interests include different areas of digital image processing and analysis, computed tomographic imaging, and control systems, stability analysis and systems simulation.

     I have been involved in microscopic sample chemical and morphological identification employing image processing and analysis of Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) Spectroscopic data. I have developed various analysis algorithms for 2D and 3D images, obtained from their hyperspectral data, as well as implemented reconstruction and visualization algorithms for the mentioned 3D chemical images.

    In the field of control systems, I am interested in simulating advanced linear and nonlinear systems, and designing and implementing controllers such as adaptive and optimal controllers.
