Christopher J. Rozell, an assistant professor in the Georgia Tech School of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE), has been appointed to the Demetrius T. Paris Junior Professorship, effective September 1. This title was previously held by ECE Associate Professor Paul L. Voss.

Rozell joined the School’s faculty in July 2008 after spending a year as a postdoctoral scholar at the Redwood Center for Theoretical Neuroscience at the University of California at Berkeley. His research interests, which are at the intersection of computational neuroscience and digital signal processing, include biological and computational vision, theoretical and computational neuroscience, high-dimensional data analysis, distributed computing using dynamical systems, and applications in imaging, remote sensing, and biotechnology.  

Rozell is a member of the Center for Signal and Information Processing, and he is heavily involved in the current organization of neuroscience and neurotechnology initiatives across campus. He currently advises five Ph.D. students and has published approximately 50 refereed journal and conference papers.

Dedicated to high quality teaching and student mentoring, Rozell has participated in the Center for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning (CETL) Class of 1969 Teaching Fellows Program and is a faculty associate for the Grand Challenges Living Learning Community at Georgia Tech. In recognition of these contributions, he was recently honored with the CETL/BP Junior Faculty Teaching Excellence Award at the 2013 Georgia Tech Faculty Staff Honors Luncheon. An excellent citizen of ECE, Rozell has also served on a variety of standing, search, and selection committees that cover many different facets of the School.
