I am Professor in the School of Computer Science at the University of Science, Malaysia. I received MSc in 1996 at Liverpool University and PhD in 2001 at John Moores University, England. Both are in Computer Sciences specifically in software engineering and video processing respectively. I have been a visiting fellow at Department of Computer Sciences at National Univerasity of Singapore from 2006 to 2008.



My research interest lie on image and videoa analysis for medical, video on demand system, watermaking and compression applications.  I am also interested on the use of brain signals for computer application.
