Vlad Morariu is a researcher at Adobe Research. His research interests involve combining computer vision, natural language, machine learning, and artificial intelligence techniques to develop rich visual and linguistic models that enable intelligent reasoning about images, videos, and related linguistic descriptions.

He received his PhD from the University of Maryland in 2010, with Professor Larry S. Davis as his advisor. Prior to that, he received the MS and BS degrees from the Pennsylvania State University in 2005, with Professor Octavia I. Camps as his thesis advisor. After completing his doctoral studies, he continued as a postdoctoral researcher and then as a research scientist at the University of Maryland until 2018, when he joined Adobe Research.
