James Cox was awarded a fellowship by NYU Courant Institute in 1983 and completed a Ph.D. in 1988, in the area of robotics algorithms. Since then his research has focused on problems in computer science having a significant mathematical component. He has done work in robotics algorithms, computational complexity theory, constraint programming and scientific visualization. He holds a U.S. patent. His recent work, supported by a large NIST/ATP grant (to a private firm), resulted in a system that can efficiently perform semiautomatic segmentation of large medical images, including segmentation of soft tissue tumors. He is presently interested in algorithmic information theory. Cox's industrial experience includes GMAC, and consulting work for the Montage Group Ltd. (a video-editing software company), Computer Aided Surgery, and other companies.
