The University at Buffalo has named Venu Govindaraju its vice president of research and economic development. He has been in the position since September 2014 on an interim basis.

Govindaraju is a globally recognized expert in machine learning and pattern recognition and a SUNY distinguished professor of computer science and engineering.

Through his research, Govindaraju has developed new techniques to address problems in the recognition of fingerprints, faces, facial expressions and multi-biometrics fusion. He is the founding director of UB’s Center for Unified Biometrics and Sensors (CUBS) and has spearheaded the establishment of a National Science Foundation Center for Identification Technology Research (CITeR) at UB.

Govindaraju has co-authored about 400 scientific papers, published five edited books, mentored 30 UB PhD students and is currently advising eight UB doctoral candidates.

Govindaraju will lead UB’s efforts to boost its research activity and its effect on the local economy.

Just last month, Govindaraju was named a Fellow of the National Academy of Inventors (NAI). The peer-nominated honor is given to academic researchers who have created or facilitated outstanding inventions that have made a tangible impact on quality of life, economic development, and the welfare of society.
