Biography

Pavan Turaga is an Associate Professor in Arts, Media and Engineering, and Electrical, Computer and Energy Engineering. He received the B.Tech. degree in Electronics and communication engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati, India, in 2004, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from the University of Maryland, College Park in 2007 and 2009 respectively. He then spent 2 years as a Research Associate at the Center for Automation Research, UMD. His research spans representational foundations for structured and unstructured imaging-data and applied aspects of aforesaid foundations in areas such as security and mobile-health (stroke rehab, preventive interventions etc.). 

He received the National Science Foundation's CAREER award in 2015. He is a Senior Member of the IEEE since 2014. He was invited to participate in the Emerging Leaders in Multimedia workshop by IBM as a graduate student in 2008, and received a Distinguished Dissertation award from UMD in 2009.

He is affiliated with the SenSIP center, Synthesis Center and the Cognitive Science program at ASU.

Research Interests

Computer Vision, Statistical and Geometric modeling, Modeling human activity, Multi-modal pattern analysis, Applications in mobile health, portable systems for rehab, experiential media-systems.
