PhD (Comp. Sc.), MSc, BMusic, BA (Queen's University, Canada); Curriculum Vitae
I am a Professor of Computer Science at RIT. My research interests include pattern recognition, machine learning, information retrieval, programming languages and human-computer interaction. I direct the Document and Pattern Recognition Lab (dprl) and am affiliated with the Intelligent Systems Area in the Computer Science Department.
I am currently helping organize the NTCIR-12 Math Information Retrieval Task for the NTCIR-12 conference being held in Tokyo (June, 2016). If you are doing work in information retrieval, please consider participating! Work in Mathematical Information Retrieval has been increasing in recent years. Papers from participants describing their systems and results will be reviewed by the competition organizers and indexed in DBLP.
Recently I give an invited talk on math search interfaces and search engines at the Conferences on Intelligent Computer Mathematics in Washington, DC (July, 2015; Math Search for the Masses). In Fall 2014 I was a Visiting Professor in the Computer Science Department at the University of Waterloo (Canada), and also at the IVC/IRCCyN research lab located in Polytech Nantes (France). At that time I also made a successful bid to Co-Chair the 2018 International Conference on Frontiers in Handwriting Recognition in Rochester (GCCIS Web Page Announcement).
A bit of fun: Joe Geigel recently found a video made for SIGGRAPH 1995 of Computer Science House (CSH) at RIT, a special interest residence where undergraduates interested in computing live, work and play together (CSH Web Page). Within the Department of Computer Science itself, the Computer Science Community (CSC) hosts talks and social events.
