Vicente Ordóñez Román

Assistant Professor
Department of Computer Science
University of Virginia
My research lies at the intersection of Computer Vision, Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning. I am especially interested in analyzing, and mining useful human insights from enormous amounts of images with associated text. I am also interested in big scale visual analytics by learning models that can perform high-level perceptual tasks for applications in social media, urban computing, and everyday activities.
About me

I'm Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Virginia. Recently, I was a researcher at the Allen Institute for Artificial Intelligence (AI2) in the Computer Vision group led by Prof. Ali Farhadi. I received my PhD in Computer Science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2015 advised by Prof. Tamara Berg. Previously, I obtained an MS in Computer Science at Stony Brook University (SUNY) and an engineering degree at the Escuela Superior Politécnica del Litoral. I'm a recipient of the 2013 IEEE Marr Prize in Computer Vision, a 2012 Yahoo! Key Scientific Challenges Award, and a Renaissance Technologies Fellowship. During my studies I also spent time at Microsoft Research, eBay Research, and Google. Here is a link to an official [bio], and my [curriculum vitae]. I'm also the mysterious juggler in page fourteen in this paper.

I'm also co-organizing with students in my group the
