About me

I am a Ph.D. student working with Prof. Jia-Bin Huang in the Vision and Learning Laboratory at the department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Virginia Tech. I am funded by Kuwait University for both my masters and Ph.D. study.

My research interests are in the area of computer vision and computer graphics. I am particularly interested in image synthesis. I am currently exploring approaches to realistic image editing and manipulation.
