Steve Tanimoto is a Professor of Computer Science and Engineering and an Adjunct Professor of Electrical Engineering at the University of Washington. He has taught courses on artificial intelligence, programming languages, data structures, algorithms, parallel processing, computer vision, graphics, and computers in education.

His current research focusses on novel applications of computer technology to mathematics education. For example, the METIP project is exploring the use of image processing in mathematics education. Another project, which began in 1996 investigates means of obtaining and using student assessment information in online learning contexts in which group discussion plays a dominant role. Related work includes, cooperative interface systems, and user modeling for computer-assisted instruction. In the past, he has studied image data structures, parallel architectures and algorithms for image processing, and visual languages.

Aside from his professional interests, he enjoys playing classical and jazz piano.
