I am currently a PhD student affiliated to the
Computer Vision Lab of the
University of Central Florida. I am being
advised by Prof.
Mubarak Shah and Dr. Rahul
Sukthankar. After spending a little more than 5 delightful years in India's
Information Technology industry, I decided to move on to academia. Since
September 2008, I am here in Orlando, alive and kicking. Life being a graduate
student is fun, here are some of my research
endeavors. I am not currently looking for a job, however I do seek interesting
research internship opportunities in the field of Computer Vision. Feel free to
drop me an e-mail at subh[at]cs[dot]ucf[dot]edu.

I spend most of my non-research time with my computer, fiddling with my eight
year old love, the Linux operating system and
championing Open Source.Here are some of
my favorite picks:
Besides Linux and Open source, I'm an outdoor adventure enthusiast and I enjoy
camping, snorkeling, mountain biking, canoeing, white-water rafting and
rock-climbing. My penchant towards music ranging from heavy metal to classic
rock to soft country has increased geometrically since I joined engineering
school. Music, my extremely supportive parents, my incomparable wife Bipasha and
my sister are my key motivations to do balanced research. Finally, I owe a lot
to my alma mater - Asansol Engineering College, the days spent here have taught
me more and more about life -the way we are supposed to see it. I have also
earned great friends and in fact, the layout of this web-page is contributed
by one of my college juniors - Indranath Bhattacharjee.
