Students: Contact me if you would like to work on any of these projects. We can set up independent study or you can work on small term projects as well that nicely fit into larger projects. Working on research projects while you study reflects your ability to multi-task and gives you an edge in the job market. Research usally leads to a publication or two which enhances the presence of your resume. Last, but not the least, you will work on stae-of-the-art, creating solutions that help the industry and community in general.
