I am a Professor in the Computer Science Department at Colorado State University. The best part of being a professor is the balance between teaching and research. Teaching provides immediate gratification: there is always a new lecture to prepare and always new and inquisitive students to question us as they learn. Both what we teach and how we teach is constantly changing, and the intellectual give-and-take with students is invigorating.

Balancing the immediacy of teaching is research. I work in an area called computer vision. People can visually see and recognize objects effortlessly. For example, a person can instantly recognize a squirrel on a log. The goal of computer vision is to develop machines that can do this just like people do. Much of my own work on computer vision has been done in partnership with my colleague Bruce Draper; the two of us jointly run the Computer Vision Group at CSU.

Our recent research has centered primarily on video understanding and face recognition. Publications may be found on the Vision Group site and Google Scholar.

The public facing side of course websites is also a passion of mine. With the help of others, I maintain the CS Roo templates to assist others developing public facing course websites.
