  • Brief Bio Jana Kosecka is an Associate Professor at the Department of Computer Science, George Mason University. She obtained her M.S.E. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from Slovak Technical University and Ph.D. in Computer Science from University of Pennsylvania in 1996. In 1996 - 1999 she was a postdoctoral fellow at the EECS Department at University of California, Berkeley. She is the recipient of David Marr's prize (with Y. Ma, S. Soatto and S. Sastry) and received the National Science Foundation CAREER Award. Jana is a former Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Robotics. Currently she is a Member of the Editorial Board of International Journal of Computer Vision and Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence. She held visiting professor positions at UC Berkeley, Stanford University and Google. She has over 70 publications in refereed journals and conferences and is a co-author of a monograph titled Invitation to 3D vision: From Images to Geometric Models. Her general research interests are in Computer Vision, Machine Learning and Robotics. In particular she is interested 'seeing' systems engaged in autonomous tasks, acquisition of static and dynamic models of environments by means of visual sensing and human-computer interaction.
