Prof. Michael Unser
The biomedical imaging group pursues research on the development of new algorithms and mathematical tools for the advanced processing of medical and biological images. Topics of interest are image reconstruction, multi-modal imaging, image analysis and visualization. Research efforts are taking place at two complementary levels:
Stamatis, Aurélien and Michael are the happy recipients of the 2017 SPS Best Paper Award from the IEEE Signal Processing Society for their paper Stamatis Lefkimmiatis, Aurélien Bourquard, and Michael Unser “Hessian-Based Norm Regularization for Image Restoration With Biomedical Applications” IEEE Transactions on Image Processing, Volume 21, No. 3, March 2012.
Ulugbek Kamilov (BIG alumni) accepted an Assistant Professorship (with tenure track) at Washington University in St. Louis. Good luck and welcome to academia !!!
Emrah Bostan successfully passed his Ph.D. exam entitled "Sparsity-Based Data Reconstruction Models for Biomedical Imaging". Congratulations!
Daniel Schmitter won the ICIP 2015 Best Student Paper Award (1st place) for his work on new parametric 3D snake for medical segmentation. He received his award from the hands of Lena herself!
Masih Nilchian won the Research award 2015 from the Swiss Society for Biomedical Engineering (SSBE) for his PhD thesis on high performance tomographic reconstruction framework.
Ulugbek's Optica paper, in collaboration with the Psaltis Lab, just got reviewed in the "News & Views" section of Nature. Check it out !
