• Adeel A. Bhutta's Bio

  • I am currently a Senior Lecturer of Computer Science at Indiana University Bloomington. I joined IU as Lecturer in August 2016. Until summer of 2016, I worked as the Coordinator and Lecturer of Computer Technology at Kent State University - Stark (with additional appointments in CS and MIS). During those 4 years, I developed the Computer Technology program from grounds-up and transformed it into one of the fastest growing programs on campus.

    My teaching expertise includes a wide range of subjects within Computer Science, Electrical & Computer Engineering and Information Technology. Since 2007, I have taught many CS/CpE/IT/COMT courses across different departments at IU, Kent State, UCF & Valencia College. I have proposed, developed and taught many face2face, hybrid and fully online courses and labs and have also assisted in many other courses over the years.

    My industrial experience involves working on optimization of Video Compression algorithms (H.263) for VLIW-based TriMedia processors and development of application software for Voice over IP (VoIP) systems for 3 years.

    I hold MS degrees of Computer Engineering (2012) and Computer Science (2006) both from University of Central Florida and I earned my  BS degree in Electronic Engineering from GIK Institute, Pakistan (1999). I am working towards my PhD degree in Computer Engineering (advised by Dr. Hassan Foroosh @ Computational Imaging Lab) from School of EECS UCF (currently ABD).

    My primary areas of research include Image Processing and Computer Vision. I am currently working on Deep Learning, Selective Subtraction, Dynamic Background Subtraction, Line Tracking and Dense Correspondences. Over the years, I have worked on a lot of projects including Analysis of Sports Videos, Image Restoration, Object Tracking, View & Texture Synthesis and Sequence Alignment in Bioinformatics.

    I have been very active in other aspects of academic/professional/campus life and have been recognized for outstanding academic achievements, service and leadership. I am a Professional (full) Member of IEEE, ACM as well as IET and regularly serve as technical reviewer for several conferences and journals. I am currently serving on Faculty Affairs Committee of CS Department. In the past I have served on Undergraduate Education Committee for CS at IU and have also served on University Council on Technology, Curriculum Committee, & Technology Committee at KSU-Stark as well as Graduate Appeals and Awards Sub-committee for UCF Graduate Council (2008-2010). In addition, I have served on several leadership positions including service as the President of Graduate Student Association (2007-08, 2 years) which represented more than 7000 graduate students. I am proud receipent of several scholarships, fellowships and awards including: TRESTLE Fellowship (2019-20), IU Trustees Teaching Award (2019), Champion of Inclusion Award (2017), Graduate Student Achievers Scholarship (2007), UCF Student Organization Officer of the Year Award (2007), Who's Who Among Students in America Universities (2006), Graduate Summer Research Fellowship (2006), National Scholars Award of Achievement (2006), SGA Campus Involvement Scholarship (2006), Outstanding Leadership Award by Pakistani Students Association (2006) and ECE Graduate Fellowship (2005).

    I love (and follow) many sports and I am always involved with local Badminton club. I have also regularly organized and participated in many Badminton and Cricket tournaments over the years. I have won numerous medals and awards while participating in Badminton tournaments all over Midwest and Florida including 2 Gold and 2 Silver medals at 2013 Sunshine State (FL) games, 1 Silver and 2 Bronze Medals at 2011 AAU Badminton National Championships. I also serve as Advisor of IU Badminton Club and Pakistani Student Association at IU.

    I am also husband to a beautiful wife (Gul), and a proud father of three daughters (Afaaf, Sibaal and Ubaab).
