I am Balaji Ganapathy, PhD candidate in Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE), at Georgia Institute of Technology.


RESEARCH

My advisor is Dr Anthony Yezzi and as a member of Lab of Computational Computer Vision, I am pursuing research in the field of computer vision and image processing. Specifically, I am formulating and developing a multi-scale visual tracking model using active contours and curve evolution models. In addition, some of my other projects include image segmentation for medical imaging, face alignment using machine learning and weighted Principal Component Analysis. My broad research interests encompasses statistical signal processing, variational PDE techniques, numerical techniques and machine learning.

ABOUT ME

I received my Master of Science (MS) degree in ECE in 2009 from Georgia Tech. During my graduate studies, I was priviledged to contribute as a software engineer at Google, NY during the summer of 2010 and as a computer vision intern (summer of 2012) at Taaz Inc. At Google, I worked on developing and designing a software framework for spam detection in Google Maps, using machine learning tools. At Taaz, I am developing a face segmentation module using boosted regression and random forests.

I completed my B. Eng. degree from Vishwakarma Institute of Technology (affliated with University of Pune), India with Electronics and Telecommunications as my major. After finishing my undergraduate studies, I worked for about four years in India. I was the co-founder/researcher at a start-up - Oneirix Labs - developing products focusing on consumer electronics and medical imaging using techniques from applied mathematics, signal processing and statistical modeling. During my two years at Oneirix, I had a wide variety of roles including Intellectual Property evaluation, system administration, project management in addition to contributing to the technical design and development. Prior to my experience at Oneirix, I was employed with a software development company called Persistent Systems, contributing to the development and life-cycle management of an identity management product.
