My research applies computer vision (and machine learning) techniques in the development and evaluation of intelligent health monitoring and rehabilitation technologies. Feel free to contact me if you are interested and want to learn more or wish to be involved in any way.

Some of the projects that I currently work on, or have been involved with in the past, include:

Prospective Students:

  • International Students: Unfortunately, I don't have the budget to recruit international students. If you send me an email, I usually try to find the time to respond and say the same thing.
  • Canadian Citizens and Permanent Residents: I do not take PhD students. I'm always interested in talking with strong Masters applicants (MSc in Computer Science; MASc and MHSc in IBBME). If you meet the admission criteria (CS, IBBME:MASc, IBBME:MHSc), send me an email and attach your CV. Put 'prospective [MSc/MASc/MHSc] student - beep beep' in the subject line so I know you've looked at my webpage!
  • I am not looking for interns or visiting students, with or without funding, and will not answer emails about this.


My research is supported by internal funding from Toronto Rehab and external funding and competitive research grants from the following agencies:

  • Alzheimer's Association and the Brain Canada Foundation
  • FedDev Ontario
  • Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC)
  • Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR)
  • Canadian Partnership for for Stroke Recovery
  • Promobilia Foundation
