Amirul Islam

I am a PhD student at Ryerson University working with Dr. Neil Bruce and Dr. Kosta Derpanis in the Computer Vision Lab. I am also a Postgraduate Affiliate at the Vector Institute for Artificial Intelligence, Toronto. I'm mainly interested in Deep Learning, Computer Vision and Machine Learning. Previously, I received my MSc in Computer Science from the University of Manitoba, where I was advised by Dr. Yang Wang and Dr. Neil Bruce in the Computer Vision Lab.
