Bio

Sethuraman “Panch” Panchanathan leads the Office of Knowledge Enterprise Development at Arizona State University, which advances research, entrepreneurship and economic development at ASU, in Arizona and beyond.

Panchanathan was the founding director of the School of Computing and Informatics and was instrumental in founding the Biomedical Informatics Department at ASU. He was also the chair of the Computer Science and Engineering Department. His research interests are in the areas of human-centered multimedia computing, face/gait analysis and recognition, haptic user interfaces, medical image processing, media processor designs and ubiquitous computing environments for enhancing quality of life for individuals with disabilities. CUbiC’s flagship project iCARE, for individuals who are blind and visually impaired, won the Governor’s Innovator of the Year-Academia Award in November 2004.

Panchanathan has published over 400 papers in refereed journals and conferences and has mentored over 100 graduate students, post-docs, research engineers and research scientists who occupy leading positions in academia and industry. He has been a chair of many conferences, program committee member of numerous conferences, organizer of special sessions in several conferences and an invited speaker, panel member in conferences, universities and industry. Panchanathan is a Fellow of the National Academy of Inventors, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), and the Society of Optical Engineering (SPIE), and a member of the Canadian Academy of Engineering. In 2014, President Obama appointed Panchanathan to the U.S. National Science Board (NSB). He has also been appointed to the National Advisory Council on Innovation and Entrepreneurship (NACIE) Board and Chair Elect of the Council on Research, formerly known as the Council on Research Policy and Graduate Education (CRPGE), within the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities (APLU). 

Research Interests

Ubiquitous Computing Environments for enhancing qualify of life for individuals with Disabilities; Health Informatics; Multimedia Computing and Communications; Analysis and Recognition of Face, Gait, Emotions, Events and Activities; Haptic User Interfaces; Media Processor Designs; Indexing and Retrieval of Images and Video; and Genomic Signal Processing.
