Jeffrey Cohn is Professor of Psychology and Psychiatry at the University
of Pittsburgh and Adjunct Professor of Computer Science at the Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University.
He leads interdisciplinary and inter-institutional efforts to
develop advanced methods of automatic analysis and synthesis of facial
expression and prosody; and applies those tools to research in human emotion,
social development, non-verbal communication, psychopathology, and
biomedicine. He has served as Co-Chair of the 2008 and 2015 IEEE International Conference on Automatic Face
and Gesture Recognition (FG2008)
(FG2015), the 2009 International Conference on Affective Computing
and Intelligent Interaction (ACII2009), the Steering Committee for IEEE International
Conference on Automatic Face and Gesture Recognition, and the 2014 International Conference on Multimodal Interaces (ACM
2014). He has co-edited special issues of the Journal
of Image and Vision Computing and
is a Co-Editor of IEEE
Transactions in Affective Computing (TAC). His research has been
supported by grants from the National Institutes of Health, National Science
Foundation, Autism Foundation, Office of Naval Research, Defense Advanced
Research Projects Agency, and other sponsors.
