News

I will be joining the ECE department at Rice University beginning in summer of 2011. I will be setting up a computer vision and computational imaging laboratory at Rice. I am looking for both graduate students and post-doctoral research associates. If you are a prospective graduate student or a post-doctoral researcher, please email me at ashok.veeraraghavan AT gmail DOT com.


Short Bio

I am a Research Scientist at Mitsubishi Electric Research Labs. I received my B.Tech in Electrical Engineering at Indian Institute of Technology, Madras in 2002, MS and PhD in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Maryland, College Park in 2004 and 2008 respectively. My thesis advisor was Prof. Rama Chellappa. My primary research interests are in computational imaging and computer vision.
