Nicola Ferrier is a Senior Computer Scientist in ANL's Mathematics and Computer Science Division, and a Senior Fellow of University of Chicago's Consortium for Advanced Science and Engineering and School of Molecular Engineering, and a member of the Northwestern Argonne Institute for Science and Engineering. Ferrier's research interests are in the use of computer vision (digital images) to control robots, machinery, and devices, with applications as diverse as medical systems, manufacturing, and biology. She collaborates with scientists from Advanced Photon Source, Materials Science, Molecular Engineering, and biological sciences on various projects where images and computation facilitate "scientific discovery". Prior to joining MCS in 2013 she was a professor of mechanical engineering at the University of Wisconsin-Madison where she directed the Robotics and Intelligent Systems lab.
