In addition to organizing membership activities, AAAS publishes the journal Science, as well as many scientific newsletters, books and reports, and spearheads programs that raise the bar of understanding for science worldwide.

Chellappa is a Minta Martin Professor of Engineering interim chair of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. His current research interests are face and gait analysis, secure biometrics, 3D modeling from video, image/video exploitation from stationary and moving platforms, compressive sensing, hyper spectral processing, and commercial applications of image processing and understanding. He was honored for distinguished contributions to the field of image processing and computer vision, particularly model-based approaches to image and video-based modeling and recognition.
