What is your research focus in a bit more detail? Is your current research path what you always had in mind for yourself, or has it evolved somewhat? If so, how/why?

My research interests include pattern recognition in complex medical data such as images and signals. The projects that I have worked on include lung nodule detection in frontal chest radiographs and detecting abnormal cortical regions in MRIs of cryptogenic epilepsy patients. In addition, I am also interested in timeseries pattern mining, image retrieval, and graphical models.
