Short Bio for Carl-Fredrik Westin
Dr. Westin is founding Director of Laboratory of Mathematics in Imaging, Department of Radiology, Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School, and Associate Professor of Radiology at Harvard Medical School, Boston. His research interests are focused on medical applications of image analysis. He is currently working on analysis of Diffusion Tensor MRI data, and automated segmentation and registration of data from MRI, CT, and Ultrasound, using multidimensional signal processing techniques. He received the MSc degree in Applied Physics and Electrical Engineering in 1988 from Linkoping University. In 1991, Dr. Westin was awarded the SAAB-SCANIA prize for his work in field of Computer Vision. He received the Lic.Techn. degree on the topic feature extraction from a tensor image descriptions, in 1991. In 1994 Westin graduated as Ph.D in Computer Vision, also from Linkoping University, Sweden. His thesis "A tensor framework for multidimensional signal processing" presents a novel method for filtering uncertain and irregularly sampled data termed normalized convolution. He joined Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School, Boston, USA, in 1996.
