Dr. Naimul Khan is an associate professor of electrical, computer, and biomedical engineering at Toronto Metropolitan University (TMU), where he directs the Multimedia Research Laboratory. He is also cross-appointed at the Creative School through the Master of Digital Media program. His research focuses on user-centric intelligent systems combining AI, computer vision and Augmented/Virtual Reality (AR/VR). He has an impressive record of publications in premier multimedia, AI, and health informatics venues, and a rich history of industry collaboration with media and healthcare companies in Toronto and beyond. This record is backed by over $3M in government funding from NSERC, OCE, MITACS, and SSHRC. Notable projects include physiological signal analysis for arrythmia detection (with the Mount Sinai Hospital and Dapasoft Inc.), non-pharmacological anxiety reduction with biofeedback-based AR/VR games (with Shaftesbury Inc.), computer aided diagnosis of neonatal anomalies (with the Mount Sinai Hospital and Dapasoft Inc.), outdoor AR storytelling at the Fort York National Historic site (with AWE Company Ltd.), AR exhibit at the Canada Science and Technology Museum (with SimentIT Inc.), and VR intervention for refugee mental health literacy in Uganda (co-PI). His research work has been featured in the media multiple times due to the broad practical impact of the projects (the Toronto Star, the Toronto Sun, Globe and Mail, TMU News). He is a recipient of the best paper award at the IEEE International Symposium on Multimedia 2017, best paper runner-up at the IEEE CVPR Workshop 2021, TMU Dean’s Research Award, OCE TalentEdge Postdoctoral Fellowship, and several other awards. He is a senior member of the IEEE, a member of the IEEE Signal Processing Society and the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society.
