• Delivered a Senior member talk at AAAI 2020 on Robustness of Face Recognition
  • After 2 years as AE of Pattern Recognition, I will now be Associate EIC starting July 2019.
  • IJCB 2020 in Houston! I will be serving as PC co-chair, with Dr. Nalini Ratha and Dr. Vitomir Struc.
  • Looking forward to working with IEEE Biometrics Council as VP Publications.


I received my Ph.D. degree in computer science from West Virginia University, Morgantown, USA, in 2008. I am currently a Professor at IIT-Jodhpur, India, and an Adjunct Professor with IIIT-Delhi and West Virginia University, USA. I've co-edited book Deep Learning in Biometrics and has delivered tutorials on deep learning and domain adaptation in ICCV 2017, AFGR 2017, and IJCNN 2017. My areas of interest are pattern recognition, machine learning, and biometrics. I am also a fellow of IAPR and a Senior Member of IEEE and ACM. I was a recipient of the Kusum and Mohandas Pai Faculty Research Fellowship at the IIIT-Delhi, the FAST Award by the Department of Science and Technology, India, and several best paper and best poster awards in international conferences. I have also served as the Program Co-Chair of AFGR2019 and BTAS 2016, and a General Co-Chair of ISBA 2017. Currently, I am serving as a Program Co-Chair of IJCB 2020. I'm also the Vice President (Publications) of the IEEE Biometrics Council and an Associate Editor-in-Chief of Pattern Recognition, and Area/Associate Editor of several journals.
