Dr. Dmitry B. Goldgof is an educator and scientist working in the area of Medical Image Analysis, Image and Video Processing, Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition, Ethics and Computing, Bioinformatics and Bioengineering. More specifically, research interests are related to two broad thrusts. First thrust is in the area of biomedical image analysis and machine learning with application in MR, CT, PET and microscopy images, radiomics and bioinformatics. Second thrust is the area of video motion analysis with biometrics, face analysis, surveillance and biomedical applications. Dr. Goldgof is currently professor and vice chair in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of South Florida (USF) in Tampa, FL. He has graduated 28 PhD and 44 MS students, published over 95 journal, 220 conference papers, 20 books chapters; and edited 5 books (GS citations impact: h-index 50, g-index 92). Dr. Goldgof is a Fellow of IEEE, a Fellow of IAPR, a Fellow of AAAS and a Fellow of AIMBE. Detailed biography can be found here.
