Ever wondered how computers see? Dr. Andrea Salgian, Assistant Professor of Computer Science, has dedicated her career to the study of that very question through her work in the field of computer vision. Here at TCNJ, Salgian shares her expertise with students both in and out of the classroom through a variety of research programs, including gesture detection, face recognition, and an interdisciplinary project working to build a robotic “maestro” conductor.
Charles Darwin’s voyage to the Galapagos Islands inspired the masterpiece of scientific thinking known as the theory of evolution by natural selection.

Yet come May, a group of students enrolled in The Natural History of the Galapagos Islandsand Ecuador will be doing just that.
