About the Mentor (via LinkedIn):

“I am passionate about teaching and doing social service. My objective in life is to support atleast 1000 poor students for their education. I would like to become an entrepreneur. I am highly fascinated towards state-of-the-art technology. I regularly follow famous blogs on MIT news, deep learning and many more.

I always like to interact with young ambitious minds. Gave lots of guest lectures and key note talks in national level conferences and symposiums”

I work in the area of Underwater imaging and my thesis title is “Investigations into underwater imaging”.

Motivation behind my work:

Humans cannot go beyond 100 meters of water depth. Hence, in order to explore deep oceans (for oil and gas explorations) scientists use remotely operated vehicles (ROV) and out of the various sensors used, optical image sensor plays a major role for the navigation of the ROV. Underwater images can suffer from different types of degradations including color loss, noise due to floating particles, low contrast, skewing and blurring. Hence, for the proper navigation of the vehicle and exploration of deep ocean resources, Digital image processing plays an important in improving the Image quality. My work primarily revolves around enhancing the underwater image quality which is very much needed as a preprocessing step for effectively adopting the existing computer vision algorithms for underwater scenario.
