John Fisher is a Principal Research Scientist at CSAIL. His research focuses on information-theoretic approaches to machine learning, computer vision, and signal processing.
Application areas include signal-level approaches to multi-modal data fusion, signal and image processing in sensor networks, distributed inference under resource constraints, resource management in sensor networks, and analysis of seismic and radar images. In collaboration with the Surgical Planning Lab at Brigham and Women's Hospital, he is developing nonparametric approaches to image registration and functional imaging.
He received a BS and MS in Electrical Engineering at the Univsersity of Florida in 1987 and 1989, respectively. He earned a PhD in Electrical and Computer Engineering in 1997.
