Oliver Cossairt currently holds the Lisa Wissner-Slivka and Benjamin Slivka Junior Chair in Computer Science at Northwestern University. Before joining Northwestern, he developed several key advances in 3D Display technology while earning my Masters at the MIT Media Lab and as an Optical Engineer at Actuality Systems, resulting in 8 patents. He earned his Ph.D. from Columbia University, where he was awarded an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship for his thesis work on the theoretical limits of computational imaging. Prof. Cossairt is currently director of the Computational Photography Laboratory at Northwestern University (http://compphotolab.northwestern.edu), whose research consists of a diverse portfolio, ranging in topics from optics/photonics, computer graphics, computer vision, and image processing. He has written a number of high-impact publications including ACM SIGGRAPH, IEEE Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence, and IEEE Transaction on Image Processing, and received Best Paper (2011) and Honorable Mention (2014) awards for publications at the IEEE International Conference on Computational Photography. He has given a keynote talk at the IEEE Computational Cameras and Displays Workshop (2013), as well as invited talks at a number of conferences including: AAAS (2015), COSI (2013,2015), CLEO Europe (2015), ICIP (2015), IPAM Computational Photography (2015), and FRINGE (2013). He has co-organized several workshops, serves on 5 conference program committees annually, and as Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Computational Imaging. His research projects have garnered funding from numerous corporate sponsorships (Google, Rambus, Samsung, Omron) and federal funding agencies (ONR, NIH, DOE, NSF CAREER Award).
