Great Grads - Tadeusz Jordan
BS, Computer Science &
Tadeusz Jordan, a native of Poland now living in Brooklyn, will graduate from CCNY's Honors Program with a B.S. in Computer Science and a B.A. in Pure Mathematics. During his career at CCNY, he earned a Peter J. Sharp Scholarship with a stipend of $40,000 and a CUNY Pipeline Fellowship.
Tadeusz was influenced by his father, also a computer science graduate, so the discourse of mathematics was a natural milieu for him.
Later he was "lured by the dichotomy between the flawlessness of algorithms and the real events they try to describe and the effort to bridge that gap" so his interest in visual computing is a natural fit.
As a senior, he worked at the City College's Visual Computing Laboratory (CCVCL) with Professor Zhigang Zhu, investigating three-dimensional reconstruction using single-view geometrical constraints and multiple images. He also conducted research on a wall-climbing robot at CCNY's Center for Perceptual Robotics, Intelligent Sensors and Machines with Professor Jizhong Xiao.
In February, Tadeusz presented his research at the 11th Annual CUNY Pipeline Conference. He has forthcoming papers submitted to the 13th International Conference on Computer Analysis of Images and Patterns in Germany and the 15th International Conference on Virtual Systems and Multimedia in Austria.
Outside his rigorous work in academia and research, Tadeusz enjoys chess, hiking and playing soccer. He also holds science-fiction books and movies in high regard.
Tadeusz will enter the Ph.D. program in computer science at Boston University in September, with the goal of an academic career in that field.
His chief inspiration at City College is Professor Zhu whom he hopes to emulate by pursuing excellence in his professional career and inspiring excellence in his future students.
