Vipin Kumar (MSI Fellow; Head, Computer Science and Engineering) is among three University professors who have been named Regents Professors. They will be formally recognized by the Board of Regents in September 2105.
Professor Kumar and his research group develop novel, high-performance data-mining algorithms and tools for mining large-scale datasets. These include projects using data from earth-observing satellites or creating methods to analyze biomedical data. Because of the “big data” nature of the data, MSI resources are critical for these types of projects.
An article about all three new Regents Professors can be found on the University’s Discover blog.
