This is Faruk Ahmed. Currently I am working on my Ph.D. in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Computer Vision Perception and Image Analysis CVPIA at the University of Memphis.

My work focuses on assistive technology for persons with visual impairments. Specifically, I am exploring the use of mobile computer vision and wearable sensors for ambient awareness. I do design, development, and deployment of smart systems that combines crowdsourcing and computation to support visually impaired people.

I currently work with Prof. Mohammed Yeasin.
