Google Research

Andrew Gallagher


I joined Google in 2014. Previously, I was a Visiting Research Scientist at Cornell University's School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, beginning in June 2012. I earned the Ph.D. degree in electrical and computer engineering from Carnegie Mellon University in 2009, advised by Prof. Tsuhan Chen. I received an M.S. degree from Rochester Institute of Technology, and the B.S. degree from Geneva College, both in electrical engineering. I worked for the Eastman Kodak Company for over a decade during the fascinating transition from chemical to digital imaging, initially developing image enhancement algorithms for digital photofinishing. These algorithms were shipped under the trade name "Kodak Perfect Touch" in photo printing mini-labs, and millions of digital cameras, and enhanced many billions of images. I enjoy working on tough and interesting problems.
