I have been with the Department of Computing Science, University of Alberta where I am currently a Professor, since 1988. I have held an NSERC Industrial Research Chair (IRC), supported jointly by Syncrude Canada Ltd. (SCL) and Alberta Innovates (formerly known as iCORE) since 2003. I am affiliated with the Centre for Intelligent Mining Systems (CIMS) and the Robotics Research Laboratory. I am also a member of the NSERC strategic network, NCRFN, on field robotics. My research interests span robotics, computer vision, and image processing.
