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 also a member of the NSERC strategic network, NCRFN, on field robotics. My research interests span robotics, computer vision, and image processing.
In 2017, I will serve as the General Chair for IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots
and Systems (IROS) in Vancouver, British Columbia, September 24-28.
