Alin Achim

Alin received the B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees, both in electrical engineering, from University “Politehnica” of Bucharest, Romania, in 1995 and 1996, respectively and the Ph.D. in biomedical engineering from the University of Patras, Greece, in 2003. He then obtained an ERCIM (European Research Consortium for Informatics and Mathematics) postdoctoral fellowship which he spent with the Institute of Information Science and Technologies (ISTI-CNR), Pisa, Italy and with the French National Institute for Research in Computer Science and Control (INRIA), Sophia Antipolis, France. In October 2004 he joined the Department of Electrical & Electronic Engineering at the University of Bristol as a Lecturer. He became Senior Lecturer (Associate Professor) in 2010.

His research interests are in statistical signal, image and video processing algorithms using sparse distributions in sparse domains and their application to various problems in fields as diverse as biomedical engineering, automotive, and defence industries. He is specifically interested in multiresolution algorithms, wavelet analysis of digital images, image denoising, super-resolution, and fusion, segmentation and classification. He has co-authored over 100 scientific publications, is an associate editor of the IEEE Transactions on Image Processing and of Digital Signal Processing (Elsevier), an elected member of the Bio Imaging and Signal Processing Technical Committee of the IEEE Signal Processing Society, and an affiliated member of the same Society’s Signal Processing Theory & Methods Technical Committee. Alin has served on numerous conferences technical programme committees in signal and image processing and has been organising committee member of the International Conference on Biosensing Technologies (Bristol 2009, Amsterdam 2011, Barcelona 2013, Lisbon 2015), of the Biomedical Imaging Workshop (Bristol 2010), and of the INGIMED X Conference (Bucharest 2009). He is member of the IET and a Senior Member of the IEEE.
