Put a face to the name.

Parthipan Siva


Welcome one and all to my corner of the electronic world. Please feel free to look around and see what I am up to. However, I make no guarantee that this page is up-to-date.

In case you are interested, here is a little bit about me. Well, the obvious first, my name is Parthipan Siva formally Parthipan Sivagnanasundaram. I shortened my last name so it can fit nicely into all the legal forms that insist everyone has at most twelve or thirteen letters in their last name. Coincidently my name in Tamil isn't that long as can be seen below:

Tamil for Parthipan Sivagnanasundaram

I obtained my PhD at Queen Mary, University of London, under the supervision of Dr. Tao (Tony) Xiang. I did my BASc and MASc at the University of Waterloo in Systems Design Engineering. At QMUL and UW I spent most of my time working on Computer Vision (CV) and Pattern Recognition related projects. As you will find out most of my webpage reflects my interest in CV. I have also worked at Aimetis Corp. and Tangam Gaming as a Vision Developer. At these two companies I developed automated intelligent surveillance systems to aid security personnel.
