NEWS
  • New papers accepted to CVPR 2014 and IROS 2014. See my publications page.
  • Raquel Urtasun and I chair the Doctoral Consortium at CVPR 2014.
  • I serve as an area chair for the IEEE Winter conference on Applications of Computer Vision (WACV), 2014, and the International Conference on Pattern Recognition (ICPR), 2014.
  • Xiaoyan Hu defended his dissertation in October, 2013.
  • I am the chair of the Doctoral Consortium at CVPR 2013.
  • Stevens has been selected as a CUDA Research Center by NVIDIA.
  • Two new grants from the NSF:
    • One under the Robust Intelligence program on "Uncertainty-driven Dynamic 3D Reconstruction" with me as the single PI.
    • One under the Major Research Instrumentation program on "Acquisition of a Large Volume, Real-time, High Resolution, Motion Capture System for an Interdisciplinary Research Facility" with Dave Cappelleri as PI and several Stevens faculty on the team.
  • I have received outstanding reviewer awards from ACCV 2010, CVPR 2011, ICCV 2011, CVPR 2012, ECCV 2012 and ICCV 2013. Not sure what this means for my priorities in time allocation...
  • I received a Google Research Award, with George Kamberov and Gerda Kamberova as coPIs, to develop novel computer vision techniques for scene understanding in large-scale urban environments. Click here for more details.

M.S. ADVISING

Office hours: Tuesday 5-6pm and by appointment. You can also email me your signed study plan or other forms for approval.

Important notes:
  • I cannot help with issues related to admissions, finances or student visas. Please contact the appropriate office for these matters.
  • I do not waive prerequisites for courses without the consent of the instructor. (This is because I do not claim to know which specific background material is required for each class.) If you think that you have covered all the prerequisites for a class, please email the instructor or bring a completed change of enrollment form to class for him or her to sign. These forms are available here along with other useful forms and the schedule of classes.
  • I strongly prefer that you contact me by email instead of telephone for record-keeping and other purposes.

WORDS OF WISDOM
By Jacob August Riis: "I go and look at a stonecutter hammering away at his rock perhaps a hundred times without as much as a crack showing in it. Yet at the hundred and first blow it will split in two, and I know it was not that blow that did it, but all that had gone before."
