My name is Lino Coria Mendoza. I am a computer science professor working on computer vision.
I work to make sure that everyone, no matter who they are, has the chance to get involved with computers and develop new tech.
Here's a list of my publications and patents from Google Scholar.
The Society for Canadian Women in Science and Technology (SCWIST) invited me to write a blog entry: "Making sure my daughters love STEM".
A Transition Q & A from 2016. Published in University Affairs.
My story was featured in the article "B.C.’s immigrants giving voice to their own stories" for Canad'as 150th birthday. There is also a nice video related to the interview.
This time it was about the challenges of parenting during Covid-19. Here's the article.
Dr. Lino Coria is an associate teaching professor at Northeastern University's Khoury College of Computer Sciences (Vancouver campus). He has a Master’s degree in electrical engineering from McMaster University (Hamilton, ON, Canada) and a Ph.D. in electrical and computer engineering from the University of British Columbia (Vancouver, BC, Canada). Lino has twenty years of experience working in both industry and academia.
Lino has conducted research in the fields of image processing and computer vision. He has published multiple papers in topics such as blind signal separation, digital image and video watermarking, high dynamic range imaging, stereoscopic video, and 3D quality of experience.
For over six years, he was a Professor at ITESO University in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico. Additionally, he has taught several courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels at the University of British Columbia, Langara College, and CINVESTAV (Mexico).
For almost a decade, Lino worked as a research engineer at several Vancouver startups developing computer vision algorithms and machine learning models for a variety of applications, including online video and metadata optimization, custom footwear design, and agricultural technology.
Since 2016, he has volunteered as a mentor to newcomers in the tech sector through the Immigrant Employment Council of BC (IEC-BC).
