In this talk I will review two decades of research in the face space examining face modeling to face recognition to facial analytics. We will journey through the face as I saw it as young graduate student and explore how the choices made in the 1990’s has shaped my research and entrepreneurial endeavors. I will delve into the intricacies of the face from the physiology of aging to detection of health and behavior signals.  This talk will hopefully convey my love for the topic of the human face and provide future areas of research.
