Aly Farag, PhD: received the bachelor degree from Cairo University, Egypt and the PhD in Electrical Engineering from Purdue University. He also holds masters' degrees in biomedical engineering from the Ohio State University and the University of Michigan. Currently, he is a Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering and founding director of the Computer Vision and Image Processing Laboratory (CVIP-Lab) focusing on research and teaching in the domains of computer vision, biometrics and biomedical imaging. He has introduced 10 courses into the ECE curriculum, authored over 350 technical papers, edited two volumes on Deformable Models for Biomedical Applications (Springer 2007), and authored the textbook Biomedical Image Analysis: Variational and Statistical Approaches (Cambridge University Press, 2014). During the past two decades, Dr. Farag has been principal investigator of a number of major projects funded by the NSF, DoD, NIH, and various federal and industrial organizations in the United States. He graduated 34 MS and 26 PhD students, and mentored more than 20 postdoctoral researchers. He holds five US patents on object modeling, computer-aided diagnosis, and visualization. He is a regular reviewer to NSF, NIH, NASA, and Research Counsel of Canada, The Czech Academy of Sciences, Science Foundation of Ireland and the Qatar National Research Fund. Dr. Farag served as associate editor of IEEE Transactions on Image Processing (2000-2004), the IET-Computer Vision (2008-Present). He has been the lead editor of the IEEE Transactions on Information Forensics and Security (IEEE-TIFS) special issue of Face Recognition in the Wild (December 2014). He is a regular reviewer to IEEE-PAMI, IEEE-TMI, IEEE-TIP, IEEE-CVPR, IEEE-ICCV, and has chaired several sessions at IEEE-ICIP, IEEE-ISBI, and IEEE-ICPR. He was co-general chair of the IEEE International Conference on Image Processing (ICIP-2009). He is recipient of the University of Louisville Research (1999), Tom Murray Teaching (2008), and The Trustees (2015) Awards. In 2002, he was appointed as university scholar. Dr. Farag is a member of AAAS, RSNA and MICCAI, and Fellow of the IEEE and IAPR.
