Suren Jayasuriya joins ASU in Spring 2018 as an assistant professor jointly between the departments of Arts, Media and Engineering (AME) and Electrical, Computer, and Energy Engineering (ECEE). Prior to this, he was a postdoctoral fellow at the Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University under the guidance of Dr. Srinivasa Narasimhan. He received his Ph.D. in 2017 from the ECE Department at Cornell University advised by Dr. Alyosha Molnar, and a B.S. in mathematics and a B.A. in philosophy from the University of Pittsburgh in 2012. His research focuses on designing new types of computational cameras, systems, and visual computing algorithms that can extract and understand more information from the world around us.
