Faculty Spotlight, Dr. Sung-Hyuk Cha
Computer science has had an enormous impact on the forensic science field, ranging from court case information retrieval to Fingerprint, Handwriting, Speaker detection, Lie detection, etc. Among many sub-fields of computer science, artificial intelligence, computer vision, pattern recognition, and robotics have received great attention in Forensic Science. These interests gave a birth to a new emerging interdisciplinary field in Computational Forensics. Professor Sung-Hyuk Cha at Seidenberg has been a faculty member of Computer Science department at Pace University since 2001. His main interests include computer vision, data mining, pattern matching & recognition. Prof Cha was involved in a challenging project, “Handwriting Verification and Identification”, which was granted a U.S. Patent in 2009. He is teaching in both graduate and undergraduate levels in fields of computational mathematics, Data structure, programming languages.
