Anthony Vodacek

Professor of Imaging Science
Rochester Institute of Technology

Anthony Vodacek is a full professor of imaging science at the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT). He received his B.S. in chemistry in 1981 from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and his M.S. and Ph.D. in environmental engineering in 1985 and 1990 from Cornell University. His areas of research lie broadly in multi-modal remote sensing with a focus on the coupling of imaging with modeling for application to monitoring both terrestrial and aquatic systems. His specific expertise is in spectral phenomenology and image interpretation, and he has recently worked on applying these methods for biodiversity assessment and monitoring, vehicle tracking, technology for precision agriculture, and detecting harmful algal blooms. He has worked in association with the University of Rwanda on various teaching and research projects for more than a decade. Vodacek is on the Fulbright Specialist roster, is an Associate Editor for the Journal of Great Lakes Research, and he is supporting the African Center for Aquatic Research and Education effort to build a monitoring system for the African Great Lakes. He is a Senior Member of IEEE and supports the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society global initiative as the ad hoc regional liaison to Sub-Saharan Africa.
