Research Interests

Major Research

  • Plasma and microwave technologies in emission control: Have been working on two funded projects (DEECON, FP7 EU and MAGS, InnovateUK) those involve emission control of marine diesel engine.  The technologies used are non-thermal plasma using microwave irradiation and electron beam, microwave dielectric heating, activated carbon based adsorption and microwave regeneration.
  • Optical pattern recognition: The work on optical pattern recognition explores 4f optical correlator for challenging optical information processing tasks. This work is in collaboration with the photonics group at Imperial College, London.
  • Fingerprint biometrics: A range of fingerprint biometrics areas of research are explored; liveness detection of fingerprint, cancelable fingerprint template generation, multi-model biometric fusion techniques, fingerprint in M-health
