Anuj Srivastava
Professor
106 D Statistics Building anuj@stat.fsu.edu http://ani.stat.fsu.edu/~anuj

Research Interests
 Statistics plays a fundamental role in many
 engineering applications. One such area that interests me is image understanding. Image
 understanding aims at developing automated systems that can match human abilities in
 analyzing images. Understanding and modeling human vision is a grand challenge; this
 active area of research involves scientists from neuroscience, psychology, computer
 science, engineering, and statistics.
