Stories of Graduate Student Success: Paris Her, electrical and computer engineering doctoral student

Paris Her, a doctoral student in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, was recently awarded the Greater Milwaukee Foundation’s Frank Rogers Bacon Research Assistantship

Her’s research focuses on using artificial intelligence/computer vision strategies to solve real-world problems.  Her noted, “With massive increases in security cameras in malls, schools, and stadiums, security footage monitoring can be an exhausting task. To help alleviate this, our team is currently investigating automated abnormal behavior (violence, theft, vandalism etc.) recognition in surveillance videos. We hope to create a positive impact to the safety of others in the future.”

Her credits his amazing colleagues and advisors, Dr. Yaz and Dr. Schneider, who have helped him with his academic career and the opportunity to receive this fellowship.
