Dileepan Joseph, a Canadian citizen, received the Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Engineering from the University of Manitoba, in 1997, and the Doctor of Philosophy degree in Engineering Science from the University of Oxford, in 2003. After completing postdoctoral research, in 2004, at the Invensys University Technology Centre, Oxford, Dr. Joseph joined the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Alberta, where he developed a research program on Imaging Science and Technology (IS&T), and taught computer programming to thousands of first-year engineering students. Dr. Joseph was also a Visiting Professor (2012–13) at the McGill Centre for Intelligent Machines.


Imaging is critical to intelligent activity in various sectors of the economy. To enable and simplify the impossible and difficult visual tasks, progress is necessary from image sensors to image understanding. By advancing the former via electronic engineering and the latter via computer science, Dr. Joseph's lab pursues excellence in imaging science and technology (IS&T), a multi-disciplinary research area, through the lens of computer engineering. Motivated applicants with relevant experience are considered for graduate studies, especially those with a competitive bachelor's degree. Those interested are advised to follow Dr. Joseph on LinkedIn, where open positions will be advertised.
