Biography

Shahriar Negahdaripour received the B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in Mechanical Engineering from the Massachusetts Inst. of technology (MIT), Cambridge, MA, in 1979, 1980 and 1987, respectively. He was an Assistant Professor of Electrical Engineering at the University of Hawaii in Manoa from January 1987 to June 1991, before joining the University of Miami in August 1991 as an Associate Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering, promoted to Professor rank in June 1999. His research focuses on optical and sonar/acoustic imaging for undersea applications, and in particular on the integration of visual cues in 2-D optical and forward-look sonar images for 3-D target reconstruction, classification, and identification. He has published more than 150 journal and conference papers in the area of computer vision and underwater applications. He is an editorial board member for the Computer Vision Image Understanding journal. He has served as the general chair of two most prestigious IEEE conferences in computer vision, namely IEEE Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition (CVPR) in 1991 and IEEE Int. Symposium on Computer Vision in 1995, and on the technical committee of several other conferences. He has been an IEEE OES Fellow since 2012.
