Anand Mishra

 

I am a research fellow at IIIT Hyderabad where I defended my PhD thesis in November 2016 under supervision of Prof. C. V. Jawahar and Dr. Karteek Alahari. My PhD dissertation is on scene text understanding. I am a reciptent of Microsoft Research India PhD fellowship 2012 and XRCI best doctoral dissertation award: first runner up 2015.


My research interest spans computer vision and pattern recognition. To be specific, I focus on energy minimization techniques, data representation, and their applications on various computer vision tasks.


I am also passionate about teaching. I have worked as a visiting instructor (part time) at IIIT-Sri City and as a teaching assistant for various courses at IIIT-H during my PhD and at BIT Mesra during my masters. In the last semester, I offered Computer Problem Solving course (for Bioinformatics and Computational Linguistic students) at IIIT Hyderabad.


Prior to joining IIIT-H for my PhD, I obtained my master's degree from Birla Institute of Technology, Mesra and undergraduate degree from Guru Ghashidas university Bilaspur (now a central university).
