Mathias Unberath, an assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science, has been appointed a John C. Malone Assistant Professor as of July 1, 2024.

The John C. Malone Assistant Professorships were endowed through the generosity of John C. Malone, Engr ’64, ’69, to support outstanding Whiting School faculty members within the Malone Center for Engineering in Healthcare.

In addition to his positions within the Department of Computer Science and the Malone Center, Unberath holds secondary appointments at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine in the Departments of Ophthalmology and Otolaryngology—Head and Neck Surgery. He is also a core faculty member of the Laboratory for Computational Sensing and Robotics and an affiliate faculty member in the Institute for Assured Autonomy.

With his group, the Advanced Robotics and Computationally AugmenteD Environments (ARCADE) Lab, Unberath 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.

Previously, Unberath was an assistant research professor of computer science and a postdoctoral fellow in the LCSR. He has received numerous awards and honors, such as being named an National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering Trailblazer and a recipient of an NSF CAREER Award, a Google Research Scholar Award, a Johns Hopkins Career Impact Award, and an inaugural Johns Hopkins Data Science and AI Institute Junior Faculty Award.
