Professor Rama Chellappa (ECE/UMIACS) has been selected to receive a 2006 IBM Faculty Award. The award, worth $15,000, is highly competitive and is offered in recognition of the quality of faculty programs and their importance to industry.

Chellappa, who previously received an IBM Faculty Development Award, is currently conducting research in face recognition technology, and will collaborate with IBM researchers in the area of multi-modal biometrics. IBM researchers, who have done much in the area of fingerprint-based user authentication, will work with Chellappa on developing automatic human authentication systems, using both face and fingerprint recognition. This research is highly relevant to the US-VISIT program, which collects both face images and fingerprints for future passports.

IBM Faculty Awards are offered annually, and are renewable by IBM. For more information about the IBM Faculty Awards program, visit the IBM website.
