• About
The Information Processing and Algorithms Laboratory (iPAL) is directed by Prof. Vishal Monga. The central research theme is to employ convex optimization theory and algorithms in signal and image processing. Active application areas include: a.) image classification and recognition esp. for medical images, b.) computational imaging, c.) robust signal (time-series) hashing, and d.) radar signal processing. Please click on tabs above for more information about iPAL members and current research.

Key Recent Research Collaborators:

  • Academia: Prof. Trac Tran (Johns Hopkins University).
  • Government Labs: Dr. Muralidhar Rangaswamy (US Air Force Research Laboratory), Dr. Nasser Nasrabadi (US Army Research Laboratory)
