Hi, I am Pavan Turaga. I am an Associate Professor jointly between the departments of Arts, Media, and Engineering and Electrical Engineering (ECEE).

I direct the Geometric Media Lab (GML) at ASU. Our work spans the gamut of inverse-problems, classification-problems, media-synthesis problems, and across sensing modalities such as images, video, wearables, and new kinds of computational sensors. Our methodologies are drawn from statistics, optimization, geometry, and topology, and broadly applied to the areas of computer vision, machine learning, health-analytics, and live experiential systems. Please browse the above tabs for a sampling of our research themes, and publications.
