  • Applications: functional imaging, fMRI, EEG, PET, optical imaging.

Short Résumé

Dimitri Van De Ville is heading the Signal Processing Unit of the Centre d'Imagerie BioMédicale (CIBM) at the University Hospital of Geneva (HUG). He is also affiliated as a senior member to the Biomedical Imaging Group, headed by Prof. Michael Unser. Beginning of 2009, he was a recipient of a Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) professorship.

In 1998, he received an Engineering Degree in Computer Sciences from Ghent University, Belgium. After his graduation, he obtained a grant of Research Assistant of the Fund for Scientific Research - Flanders, Belgium (FWO) at the Medical Signal and Image Processing group within the Department of Electronics and Information Systems (ELIS), Ghent University, Belgium. On 8th January 2002, he obtained his Ph.D. entitled "Linear, Non-linear, and Fuzzy Logic based Image-Resampling Techniques."

From April 2002 until October 2002, he was a visiting research fellow at the Biomedical Imaging Group of Prof. Michael Unser at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) near the lake of Leman in Lausanne (VD), Switzerland. From October 2002 to November 2005, he continued his research at the same laboratory. In December 2005, he became responsible for the Signal Processing Satellite at the University Hospital in Geneva as part of the large CIBM project (EPFL, UniGE, UNIL, HUG, CHUV).
