Mathias Unberath, an assistant professor of computer science at the Whiting School of Engineering with secondary appointments in the School of Medicine, is one of 10 members of the Johns Hopkins community who were awarded Career Impact Awards in November. The awards recognize individuals who have provided outstanding contributions to the professional development of their students and trainees.
Sponsored by the Office of Integrative Learning and Life Design, the Career Impact Awards were established by the PHutures office to celebrate individuals at JHU who are not career development professionals but regardless share their expertise, networks, and support with their trainees.
Unberath is a core faculty member of the Laboratory for Computational Sensing and Robotics, a fellow at the Malone Center for Engineering in Healthcare, and an affiliate of the Institute for Assured Autonomy. With his group, the Advanced Robotics and Computationally AugmenteD Environments (ARCADE) Lab, he builds the future of computer-assisted medicine by creating collaborative intelligent systems. Through synergistic research on imaging, computer vision, machine learning, and interaction design, he invents human-centered solutions that are embodied in emerging technology, such as mixed reality and robotics.
Unberath was nominated for the award by graduate student Benjamin Killeen in recognition of his dedication to providing individualized mentorship, his unique initiative in organizing annual lab retreats, his exemplary mentoring efforts across multiple departments, and his promotion of inclusivity by fostering a lab environment that celebrates diverse backgrounds and research interests.
