Congratulations to Dr. Vijay Asari for being awarded the 2016 Sigma Xi George B. Noland Award for Outstanding Research! Sigma Xi selected Dr. Asari as the recipient for the George B. Noland Award because of his outstanding research and dedication to students at the University of Dayton.

In 2010, Dr. Vijayan Asari was chosen as the University of Dayton Ohio Research Scholars Endowed Chair in Wide Area Surveillance after an extensive national search. At Dayton, Dr. Asari is also a professor with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and the director of the Center of Excellence for Computer Vision and Wide Area Surveillance Research (Vision Lab).

Dr. Asari began teaching as an assistant professor in electronics and communications at TKM College of Engineering, University of Kerala, India. In 1996, he joined the National University of Singapore as a Research Fellow and led a team for the development of a vision-guided microrobotic endoscopy system. In 1998, he joined the School of Computer Engineering at Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore, and led the computer vision and image processing research activities in the Center for High Performance Embedded Systems at NTU. In August 2000, Dr. Asari joined the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Old Dominion University (ODU), Norfolk, Virginia, and accepted a tenure track position in electrical and computer engineering in 2001. He was tenured in 2006, and promoted to full professor in 2007. At ODU, he was the founding director of the Computational Intelligence and Machine Vision Laboratory.

Dr. Asari’s selected research includes wide area surveillance, scene analysis and understanding, human identification, human activity recognition, video preprocessing, and brain activity analysis.
