Amit Roy-Chowdhury leads the Video Computing Group at UCR, working on foundational principles of computer vision, image processing, and machine learning, with applications in cyber-physical, autonomous and intelligent systems. Prof. Roy-Chowdhury's research has been supported by various US government agencies and private industries. His research group has published over 200 papers in peer-reviewed journals and top conferences. He is the first author of the book Camera Networks: The Acquisition and Analysis of Videos Over Wide Areas, the first monograph on the topic. His work on face recognition in art was featured widely in the news media, including a PBS/National Geographic documentary and in The Economist. He is on the editorial boards of major journals and program committees of the main conferences in his area. He is a Fellow of the IEEE and IAPR, received the Doctoral Dissertation Mentoring/Advising Award from UCR in 2019, and the Distinguished Alumni Award from the University of Maryland, College Park in 2020.
