My name is Birendra Kathariya. Currently, I am pursuing PhD. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering at University of Missouri-Kansas City (UMKC). I completed my masters' degree from the same university. I work as a Research Assistant in Multimedia Computing and Communication Lab under the supervision of Professor Zhu Li. My research mostly focuses on multimedia compression and processing.
I received my bachelor degree in Electronics and Communication Engineering from Nepal Engineering college, Bhaktapur, Nepal. I majored in Electronics and Communication Engineering.
