Bosco Tjan
December 5, 2016

The Department of Computer Science and Engineering mourns the untimely death of alumnus Bosco Tjan (Ph.D. 1997).

Tjan was an expert in the field of perception, vision and vision cognition who went on to become a professor of psychology at the University of Southern California (USC). He was the co-director of the Dornsife Cognitive Neuroimaging Center, which he helped found in 2005.

Over the weekend, the USC community remembered Professor Tjan as “a generous and insightful colleague, an outstanding teacher, and a prolific researcher and excellent collaborator … as eager to share the work of his fellow faculty as he was to teach graduate students and postdoctoral fellows.”

Professor Tjan is survived by his wife and son.

A touching remembrance of Professor Tjan’s life and career can be read here. USC President C. L. Max Mikias hosted a time of prayer and reflection on USC's campus in honor of Professor Tjan.
