Rick Johnson, an engineering professor on the Hill—and, at the risk of a mixed metaphor, something of a Renaissance man. At Cornell since 1981, Johnson has spent decades teaching and doing research in electrical engineering, particularly in the fields of control systems and signal processing. But over the past twelve years, his interests have entailed as much art as science. A pioneer in the field of computational art history, Johnson leverages both his engineering acumen and his abiding passion for art to study the physical materials with which works are made.

Daniel Lee Joins Cornell Tech Faculty
Daniel Lee, Ph.D., Professor comes to Cornell Tech after 17 years at the University of Pennsylvania where he was the UPS Foundation Chair Professor in the School of Engineering and Applied Science. At Cornell, he will teach in the Electrical and Computer Engineering department. His research focuses on understanding computational principles in biological systems, and applying that knowledge to build autonomous robotic systems. Before UPenn, Lee was a researcher at AT&T and Lucent Bell Laboratories in the Theoretical Physics and Biological Computation departments. He was also a fellow of the Hebrew University Institute of Advanced Studies in Jerusalem, an affiliate of the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology and organized the US-Japan National Academy of Engineering Frontiers of Engineering symposium. He is also serving part-time as an Executive Vice President at Samsung Research.
