Dr. Nabeel Mohammed completed his Bachelors in Computer Science from Monash University Australia. Following that he worked as a Software Developer for Editure Ltd, a Melbourne based Software Firm specializing in providing software solutions for K-12 schools. After three and half years in that role he moved back into academia to complete his PhD at Monash University, Australia, where he worked in the area of unsupervised image feature extraction and its application to content-based image retrieval. His current research interests lie in the area of computer vision and natural language processing. He is very enthusiastic about collaborating with industry partners and has had successful collaborations with Apurba Technologies, HeadBlocks, Giga Tech Ltd., Gaze Technologies and others. He also leads the Apurba-NSU R&D Lab that has contributed to multiple AI related projects of Apurba Technologies.
