Biography: 

Aniket Bera is an assistant research professor at the University of Maryland Institute for Advanced Computer Studies (UMIACS).

His core research interests are in computer graphics, AI, social robotics, visual crowd tracking, data-driven crowd simulations, and cognitive modeling: knowledge, reasoning and planning for intelligent characters.

Bera is working with the Geometric Algorithms for Modeling, Motion, and Animation (GAMMA) group.

His current research focuses on the social perception of intelligent agents and robotics. Bera's research involves novel combinations of methods and collaborations in the field of computer vision, physically-based simulation, big-data statistical analysis, and machine learning to develop real-time computational models to classify such behaviors and validate their performance. This research provides insight into the use of gait-assessment technologies for Al monitoring systems that are less sensitive to reactance.

Bera has previously worked in many research labs including Disney Research, Intel and Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (Government of India).

He comes to UMD from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC Chapel Hill), where he was a research assistant professor.

Bera received his doctorate in computer science from UNC Chapel Hill in 2017.
