I work for Google Research and the University of Toronto. I joined the
University of Toronto in 2004, and the Google Brain Team in Toronto in 2020.
Prior to the move to Toronto I worked in the Digital Video Analysis and
Perceptual Document Analysis Groups at the
Xerox PARC (1999-2003),
and at Queen's University
in Kingston (1990-1998).
During 2012-2017 I served as Chair of the Department of Computer and
Mathematical Sciences at the University of Toronto Scarborough.
I have been a faculty member at the Vector Institute since 2017,
serving as Associate Director, Industry Innovations until 2020.
I served as Associate Editor (2000-2003) and then as Associate
Editor-in-Chief (2004-2008) for IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence (PAMI). I also served as Program
Co-Chair of IEEE CVPR (2003), ECCV (2014), and as Area Chair for numerous
vision and learning conferences (CVPR, ECCV, ICCV, NIPS, ICML). At present
I serve on the Advisory Board for IEEE PAMI.
My research interests include aspects of computer vision, machine learning,
image processing, and visual neuroscience. Most of my specific research
in vision and image analysis has focused on mathematical foundations and
algorithms for visual motion analysis and stereopsis, tracking, human pose
and motion estimation, video classification/captioning, and more recently
3D reconstruction for electron cryo-microscopy.
My research in machine learning has focused on discrete and continuous
latent variable models for human pose and motion and large scale data
indexing and retrieval.
