Christopher J. Rozell received a B.S.E. degree in Computer Engineering and a B.F.A. degree in Music (Performing Arts Technology) in 2000 from the University of Michigan. He attended graduate school at Rice University, receiving the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering in 2002 and 2007, respectively. Following graduate school he joined the Redwood Center for Theoretical Neuroscience at the University of California, Berkeley as a postdoctoral scholar. In 2008 Dr. Rozell joined the faculty at the Georgia Institute of Technology where he is currently an Associate Professor and holds the Demetrius T. Paris Junior Professorship in Electrical and Computer Engineering.

His research interests live at the intersection of signal processing, machine learning and computational neuroscience. Specifically, his lab uses tools from modern data analysis to improve our understanding of complex systems such neural systems, and draws insight from modern neuroscience to build more effective computational systems. Applications of this work range range biotechnology to remote sensing. His research lab is affiliated with both the Center for Signal and Information Processing and the Laboratory for Neuroengineering. In 2014, Dr. Rozell received a James S. McDonnell Foundation 21st Century Science Initiative Scholar Award in Studying Complex Systems, and a National Science Foundation CAREER Award. In addition to his research activity, Dr. Rozell was awarded the CETL/BP Junior Faculty Teaching Excellence Award at Georgia Tech in 2013.
