Biography: 

Sinisa Todorovic obtained his MS and PhD degrees in electrical and computer engineering from the University of Florida. He earned his BS/MS in electrical engineering from the University of Belgrade in Serbia.

Before coming to Oregon State University, Todorovic was a Postdoc in the Beckman Institute at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign where he worked on multiscale image segmentation, structural pattern recognition, object / scene recognition and texture classification and synthesis. He was also a software engineer at Siemens from 1998-2001.
