Professor Tannenbaum is a lead collaborator with Professor Benveniste.

Allen Tannenbaum is an applied mathematician and presently Distinguished Professor of Computer Science and Applied Mathematics & Statistics at the State University of New York at Stony Brook. He is also Visiting Investigator of Medical Physics at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City. Tannenbaum has done research in numerous areas including robust controlcomputer vision, and medical imaging, having more than 500 publications. He pioneered the field of robust control with the solution of the gain margin and phase margin problems. He was one of the first to introduce partial differential equations in computer vision and biomedical imaging co-inventing an affine-invariant heat equation for image enhancement. Tannenbaum and collaborators further formulated a new approach to optimal mass transport theory. In recent work, he has developed techniques using graph curvature ideas for studying cancer networks. His work has won several awards including IEEE FellowO. Hugo Schuck Award of the American Automatic Control Council, and the George Taylor Award for Distinguished Research.
