Kunal Narayan Chaudhury

I'm an Associate Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering, Indian Institute of Science, where I head the Lab for Imaging Sciences and Algorithms. My research interest is in computational imaging, computer vision, and machine learning, with a focus on continuous optimization and fast algorithms. I'm a senior member of IEEE and a member of SIAM. I am on the Editorial Board of IEEE Signal Processing Letters and was a Senior Editor of SPIE Journal of Electronic Imaging in the past.
