Professor Ruzena Bajcsy

For pioneering researcher Ruzena Bajcsy, fostering cutting-edge technology to improve people’s lives is a noble challenge. Dr. Bajcsy took the helm at CITRIS in November 2001, after devoting more than 30 years of her life to research in the fields of robotics, artificial intelligence and machine perception.

Bajcsy’s credentials reach across the traditionally discrete fields of neuroscience, applied mechanics and computer science. She is a member of both the National Academy of Engineering and the Institute of Medicine, a distinction few people can match.
