Alan L. Yuille, Professor
Phone: 310 267-5383
Professor Alan L. Yuille holds a full-time position at Department of Statistics, University of California, Los Angeles. He also holds courtesy appointments at Department of Psychology, Department of Computer Science, Department of Psychiatry. He is a co-director of UCLA Center for Cognition, Vision, and Learning. He is affiliated with UCLA Staglin Center for Cognitive Neuroscience, UCLA Center for Computational Biology, and Korea University
A Postdoctoral Position is currently available. The
research involves modeling objects, images, and
image sequences. Skills required include
mathematical modeling and programming ability (C++,
Cuda). Knowledge of hierarchical probabilistic
models and machine learning is strongly required.
Interest in neuroscience desired but not essential.
Some publications in major conferences and journals
a pre-requisite. Contact Prof. Yuille with CV,
research statement, and references (e.g., faculty
adviser) for more details.
Alan Yuille received the BA degree in mathematics from the University of Cambridge in 1976. His PhD on theoretical physics, supervised by Prof. S.W. Hawking, was approved in 1981. He was a research scientist in the Artificial Intelligence Laboratory at MIT and the Division of Applied Sciences at Harvard University from 1982 to 1988. He served as an assistant and associate professor at Harvard until 1996. He was a senior research scientist at the Smith-Kettlewell Eye Research Institute from 1996 to 2002. He joined the University of California, Los Angeles, as a full professor with a joint appointment in statistics and psychology in 2002. He obtained a joint appointment in computer science in 2007. His research interests include computational models of vision, mathematical models of cognition, and artificial intelligence and neural networks.
