I am a faculty member at University of Florida's Department of CISE.

My research interests are in Massively Parallel Computing, Automated Processing and Understanding of Imagery and Natural Language, Data Compression, and Cryptology. I am also among the faculty affiliated with UF's Digital Arts and Sciences program, with research interests in Psychoacoustics and Computer-Generated Music. I have authored or co-authored over 170 book chapters or research papers in open conference proceedings and journals, have edited 15 books, and am currently authoring or co-authoring two books.

We are considering ideas for a possible SPIE Conference on the Mathematics of Data/Image Pattern Recognition, Compression, and Encryption, with Applications - for the 2020 SPIE Technical Symposium, in San Diego, CA. Compared with previous years, the chairs and program committee suggest a shift in focus of the conference to include image segmentation / understanding, pattern recognition, and video understanding, to better support the emerging technology of object-based compression, among other areas of interest. For comparison, a previous conference program can be viewed at this link (PDF format) . Ideas for next year's conference are being solicited, so please feel free to email me if you have topics in the theory of image compression, coding, encryption, or pattern recognition that you think should be addressed.

Personal interests include hiking, surfing, photography, music, and botany (e.g., images this page).
