Ghulam Mujtaba

Postdoctoral Scholar, West Virginia University, Morgantown, West Virginia, USA

I bring a rich blend of academic and industrial experience to the computer vision and deep learning domain. Holding a Ph.D. in Computer Engineering from Gachon University, I focused on personalized multimedia generation for resource-constrained devices at the Multimedia Computing Systems Laboratory (MCSLab) under the guidance of Prof. Eun-Seok Ryu. My academic background includes a Master of Science in Computer Science from Indus University and a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science from COMSATS Institute of Information Technology in Pakistan. As a specialized computer vision researcher, I excel in utilizing deep learning techniques for visual analysis, multimedia retrieval, and image processing. I am dedicated to advancing computer vision and deep learning in both academic and industrial settings.
