Baba C. Vemuri received the PhD in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Texas at Austin. Currently, he holds the Wilson and Marie Collins professorship in Engineering at the University of Florida. He is a full professor in the Department of Computer and Information Sciences and Engineering and holds affiliate appointments in the Department of Statistics, ECE and BME at the University of Florida. He served as a program chair for several conferences including the 11th IEEE International Conference on Computer Vision (ICCV 2007). He served as an area chair and a program committee member of several IEEE conferences. He was an associate editor for several journals, including the IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence --TPAMI, (from 1992 to 1996), the IEEE Transactions on Medical Imaging -- TMI, (from 1997 to 2003) and the journal of Computer Vision and Image Understanding (from 2000-2010). He is currently an associate editor for the Journal of Medical Image Analysis (MedIA) and the Intl. Journal of Computer Vision (IJCV). His research interests include Statistical Analysis of Manifold-valued Data, Medical Image Computing, Computer Vision, Machine Learning, Information Geometry and Applied Mathematics. For the last several years, his research work has primarily focused on statistical analysis of manifold-valued data with applications to Medical Image Computing and Computer Vision. Along this theme, he has been developing algorithms for the recursive computation of the statistics on Riemannian manifolds pertinent to manifold-valued data sets e.g., diffusion magnetic resonance images (dMRI), manifold of linear subspaces (Grassmann manifold) etc. His research team has developed novel methods for 3D image segmentation, unimodal and multimodal image (rigid+nonrigid) registration, nonrigid registration of 3D point sets, metric learning, and large margin classifiers. He has published over 200 refereed journal articles and conference proceedings on Medical Image Computing, Computer Vision, Graphics, and Applied Mathematics. He received the US National Science Foundation Research Initiation Award (NSF RIA) in 1988 and the Whitaker Foundation Award in 1994. He has received, several best paper awards at various International Conferences, the IEEE Technical Achievement Award (2017) and is a Fellow of the IEEE (2001) and the ACM (2009). In 2016, he was awarded the Doctoral Dissertation Mentorship Award from the Herbert Wertheim College of Enginnering at UFL.
