Biometrics Robust to Optical Atmospheric Turbulence

M.Sc Research @ VAST Lab


I work on the IARPA BRIAR project with a team that includes academic and industry partners.

In initial work [1], we looked at the effect atmospherics on deep learning models. Ongoing work is looking at algorithms to learn feature representations invariant to optical atmospheric turbulence.
