Christopher J. Rozell received a B.S.E. degree in Computer Engineering and a B.F.A. degree in Music (Performing Arts Technology) 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. In 2008 Dr. Rozell joined the faculty at the Georgia Institute of Technology where he is currently an Associate Professor in Electrical and Computer Engineering, a member of the Graduate Program Faculty in Biomedical Engineering, and an Adjunct Associate Professor in the School of Interactive Computing.
Dr. Rozell's research interests live at the intersection of data science, complex systems and computational neuroscience. His research has been funded by NSF, NIH, ONR, DARPA, NGA, the James S. McDonnell Foundation, and Texas Instruments. His research group (Sensory Information Processing Lab -- SIPLab) is affiliated with both the Center for Signal and Information Processing as well as the Laboratory for Neuroengineering at Georgia Tech.
He is currently an Associate Editor on the inaugural editorial board of the IEEE Transactions on Molecular, Biological and Multi-scale Communications and he previously held the Demetrius T. Paris Junior Professorship in the School of ECE at Georgia Tech. 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 awarded the CETL/BP Junior Faculty Teaching Excellence Award at Georgia Tech in 2013.
