I am a Professor of Computer Science at RIT, specializing in document analysis and information retrieval. I direct the Document and Pattern Recognition Lab (dprl) and am affiliated with the Intelligent Systems Area in the Computer Science Department. During my sabbatical 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).
I will be co-chairing the 2018 International Conference on Frontiers in Handwriting Recognition in Rochester (GCCIS Web Page Announcement). If you work in handwriting recognition, we hope to see you here in 2018. I was also recently appointed as a Co-Organizer for the NTCIR-12 Math-3 math retrieval task/competition, the results from which will be presented June 2016 at the NTCIR-12 conference in Tokyo, and will give an invited talk at the upcoming Conferences on Intelligent Computer Mathematics in Washington, DC (June, 2015).
