A professor in the Electrical & Computer Engineering and Computer Science Departments, Manjunath was honored for his contributions to image search and retrieval with applications in digital libraries, marine sciences, and biology. He serves as the director of UCSB’s Center for Multimodal Big Data Science and Healthcare, and his lab created BisQue, an image management and analysis platform that makes it easier to share and distribute large data sets and use them to collaborate. The platform manages imaging data for marine science, biology, materials science, and neuroscience. Manjunath is also a Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).

Fewer than one percent of the association’s global members are selected as ACM Fellows. The fifty-six Fellows in this year’s class hail from the United States, Finland, Greece, Israel, Sweden, and Switzerland.

“The ACM Fellow program publicly recognizes the people who made key contributions to the technologies we enjoy,” said ACM President Cherri M. Pancake. “We are honored to add a new class of Fellows to ACM’s ranks, and we look forward to the guidance and counsel they will provide to our organization.”

The ACM will formally recognize its 2018 Fellows at the annual Awards Banquet in San Francisco on June 15, 2019.
