Assistant Professor

Department of Computer Science and Informatics

Indiana University at Bloomington

Bio

Kris Hauser received his PhD in Computer Science from Stanford University in 2008, advised by Jean-Claude Latombe, and received bachelor's degrees in Computer Science and Mathematics from UC Berkeley in 2003. He also worked as a postdoctoral fellow at UC Berkeley, in the Automation Lab under Ken Goldberg. He has held his current position as Assistant Professor in Computer Science and Informatics at Indiana University since August 2009. He is a recipient of a Stanford Graduate Fellowship, Siebel Scholar Fellowship, and the NSF CAREER award. More...
