|Bart M. ter Haar Romeny is professor of
Biomedical Image Analysis (BMIA) at the Department of Biomedical Engineering
at the Eindhoven University of Technology, and distinguished professor at
Northeastern University in Shenyang, China.
From 1989-2001 he was associate professor at the Image Sciences Institute of Utrecht University.
Education: MSc in Applied Physics (1978) at Delft University of Technology, PhD (1983) at Utrecht University in 1983.
He is EAMBES Fellow, and Senior IEEE member. He received the Wolfram Technology Innovator Award in 2013. He has been president of the Dutch Society for Clinical Physics, of the Dutch Soc. for Biophysics and Biomedical Engineering, and is currently president of the Dutch Soc. for Pattern Recognition and Image Processing. Appointed at TU/e in 2001, he handed over the chair to prof. Pluim in 2014 for medical reasons.
He is currently project leader of the Sino-Dutch RetinaCheck project (www.retinacheck.org), a large screening program for diabetic retinopathy in Northeast China.
His interests are medical image analysis, its foundations and clinical applications. In order to understand image structure and analysis, a close look is taken to the human visual system. His interests are in particular the mathematical modelling of front-end vision, linear and non-linear scale-space theory, medical computer vision applications, computer-aided diagnosis, molecular imaging, differential geometry and visual perception. He authored about 350 papers, conference contributions and book chapters on these issues, holds 2 patents, authored an interactive tutorial book on perceptually inspired multi-scale image analysis, edited a book on non-linear diffusion theory in Computer Vision and is involved in (resp. initiated) a number of international collaborations on these subjects. He is a frequent and appreciated lecturer. He is enthusiast user of Mathematica.
