Kristen Grauman
Computer Science

Grauman is the Clare Boothe Luce Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Texas at Austin. She earned her Ph.D. and S.M. degrees in Computer Science from MIT in 2006 and 2003, and her B.A. in Computer Science from Boston College in 2001.

Grauman's group focuses on problems in computer vision and machine learning, particularly visual recognition and large-scale image and video retrieval.  The goal of their research is to develop algorithms to categorize and detect objects, activities, or scenes, and large-scale visual search techniques that can rapidly identify the most relevant content within massive collections.
