IUPUI has appointed Paul Salama assistant dean of graduate programs in the School of Engineering and Technology. He has served as a professor of electrical and computer engineering at the school since 2012. Salama's current research interests revolve around the development of image analysis techniques for microscopy data, automatic scene/object detection methods, morphometric analysis techniques for the brain, deep learning methods for biomedical image analysis and correcting motion artifacts in PET scans. These efforts have been funded through grants from the National Institutes of Health. Salama is a senior member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers and a member of Tau Beta Pi and Eta Kappa Nu. In his new position, he will explore improving processes and procedures related to the graduate programs as well as propose new and creative ways to increase demand for the graduate programs hosted in the school’s departments. Salama will also investigate ways in which to create new, multi-disciplinary courses and projects with the other schools on the IUPUI campus. He received his graduate degrees, a master of science in electrical engineering and a Ph.D. in electrical and computer engineering from Purdue University. His graduate study involved developing error resilience and error concealment techniques to combat the loss of data during the transmission of compressed video streams over packet networks.
