Faculty

Kanad Ghose is a Professor and the department chair in Computer Science at the State University of New York, Binghamton. He received his M.S. (1986) and Ph.D. (1988) in Computer Science from Iowa State University, and M.Tech (1980) and B.Tech (1977) in Electronics Engineering from University of Calcutta. His current research interests include Computer Systems and Architecture, Parallel & Distributed Processing, High-Performance Networking, and Low Power Systems. His research interests in security include trusted computing, particularly dynamic authentication of remote executions, architectural support for trusted computing, systems level approaches for DoS mitigation and secure storage systems.

Kartik Gopalan is an Associate Professor in Computer Science at the Binghamton University. He received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from Stony Brook University, M.S. in Computer Science from Indian Institute of Technology, Chennai, and B.E. in Computer Engineering from Delhi Institute of Technology. His research interests are in Resource Virtualization, Security, and Distributed Systems. Before joining Binghamton University, he was an Assistant Professor in CS at Florida State University (2003-2006), Lead Architect and Developer at Rether Networks Inc. (2000-2001), and Senior Software Engineer at Wipro Global R&D, Bangalore (1996-1997). He is a recipient of the National Science Foundation CAREER Award.

Lijun Yin is a Professor in Comp/uter Science at Binghamton University. His research contributes to the development of computer vision, computer graphics, multimedia, and human computer interaction, specifically including human emotion and affective computing, 3D dynamic objects modeling, tracking, and understanding, face behavior and gesture analysis and synthesis, motion tracking, and biomedical image processing. He has applied machine learning approaches to address the multimodal affective computing issue. His group has developed three 3D facial databases for the research community, with about 3TB dataset. This is the first of this kind for the research community of affective computing, biometrics, psychology, entertainment, security, human computer interaction, multimedia, etc. The databases have been widely used by over 400 research groups worldwide, thus advancing the facial expression research from the traditional 2D domain to 3D/4D domain in a high level of detail and robustness. Specifically, Dr. Yin is currently applying machine learning approaches to recognize human emotions with unique feature extraction, and trained on 3D video data and tested on data from sensors including 3D imaging of RGB sensors, thermal sensors, physiological sensors, and infrared sensors. His unique eye tracking and hand pointing technique (two US patent granted recently) have been applied to develop a novel smart-room system with a realistic multi-modal human computer interface with hand gesture recognition as well. The system is expected to enhance HCI, education, teaching and learning experience, security, and healthcare. Graphics and Image Comuputing Lab
