  • Image Classification
  • Image Restoration
  • Pattern Recognition
  • Applied Machine Learning


At Blekinge Institute of Technology (BTH), I am participating, research-wise, in a large research project, "Scalable resource-efficient systems for big data analytics," where close research collaboration with industry is key for the project execution. More specifically, I am leading research theme B: Big data analytics for image processing. The research profile combines existing expertise in machine learning, data mining, and computer engineering to create new knowledge in the area of scalable resource-efficient systems for big data analytics. The value of the new knowledge is demonstrated and evaluated in two application areas (decision support systems and image processing).
