I am the Mandell Bellmore Professor of Computer Science at The Johns Hopkins University. My principal areas of research are computer vision and robotics, and my application interests these days are in the area of medical devices and human-machine systems for manufacturing or in-home applications. I direct the Computational Interaction and Robotics Lab (CIRL) in the Laboratory for Computational Sensing and Robotics which is located in Hackerman Hall. I am the Chair of the Computing Community Consortium Council and I am a member of the boards of the Computing Research Association and the International Federation of Robotics Research. I served as chair of Computer Science from 2010-2015 and I served as the deputy director of the NSF Engineering Research Center for Computer-Integrated Surgical Systems and Technology (CISST). I am a Fellow of the IEEE for my contributions to computer vision and robotics. My Google Scholar profile is here.
To advance neuroscience discovery by uniting neuroscience, engineering and computational data science to understand the structure and function of the brain.
