Jeffrey Cohn is Professor of Psychology and Psychiatry at the University of Pittsburgh and Adjunct Professor at the Robotics
Institute at Carnegie Mellon University. He has led interdisciplinary and inter-institutional efforts to develop advanced methods of automatic analysis of facial expression and prosody; and applied those tools to research in human emotion, social development, non-verbal communication, psychopathology, and biomedicine. He co-chaired the 2008 IEEE International Conference on Automatic Face and Gesture Recognition (FG2008) and the2009 International Conference on Affective Computing and Intelligent Interaction (ACII2009). He has co-edited two recent special issues of the Journal of Image and Vision Computing. 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 the Technical Support Working Group.
