Christopher J. Rozell received a B.S.E. degree in Computer Engineering and a B.F.A. degree in Music in 2000 from the University of Michigan. He attended graduate school at Rice University, receiving the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering in 2002 and 2007, respectively. Following graduate school he joined the Redwood Center for Theoretical Neuroscience at the University of California, Berkeley as a postdoctoral scholar. Dr. Rozell joined the Georgia Institute of Technology in 2008 where he is currently a Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering (Biomedical Engineering and Interactive Computing, by courtesy). His research interests live at the intersection of machine learning, signal processing, complex systems, computational neuroscience and biotechnology. Dr. Rozell previously served as co-Director of the Neural Engineering Center and as the Demetrius T. Paris Junior Professor at Georgia Tech, where his lab is affiliated with the Center for Machine Learning and the Institute for Robotics and Intelligent Machines. In 2014, Dr. Rozell was one of six international recipients of the Scholar Award in Studying Complex Systems from the James S. McDonnell Foundation 21st Century Science Initiative, as well as receiving a National Science Foundation CAREER Award and a Sigma Xi Young Faculty Research Award. In addition to his research activity, Dr. Rozell was received numerous teaching awards, including the Class of 1940 W. Howard Ector Outstanding Teacher Award (2019), the CETL/BP Junior Faculty Teaching Excellence Award (2013) and the Class of 1940 Teaching Effectiveness Award (2013).
