Bio/Research

Dr. Pietro Perona is the Allen E. Puckett Professor of Electrical Engineering at Caltech. He directs Computation and Neural Systems (www.cns.caltech.edu), a PhD pogram centered on the study of biological brains and intelligent machines. Professor Perona's research centers on vision.

Professor Perona's research focuses on vision: how do we see and how can we build machines that see.

Professor Perona has been mostly active in the area of visual recognition, more specifically visual categorization.

In collaboration with Professors Anderson and Dickinson, professor Perona is building vision systems and statistical techniques for measuring actions and activities in fruit flies and mice. This enables geneticists and neuroethologists to investigate the relationship between genes, brains and behavior.
