Aly A. Farag received the bachelor degree from Cairo University, Egypt and the PhD degree from Purdue University in Electrical Engineering. He also holds master degrees in bioengineering from the Ohio State and the University of Michigan. In 1998-90 he was a visiting professor at the University of Minnesota. He joined the University of Louisville in August 1990, where he is currently a Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering. At the University of Louisville, Dr. Farag founded the Computer Vision and Image Processing Laboratory (CVIP Lab) which focuses on imaging science, computer vision and biomedical imaging. Dr. Farag expertise is image analysis with multidisciplinary applications where he has over two decades of experience with image modeling, statistical methods, geometrical computer vision, biometrics, and biomedical imaging analysis. He holds one official patent on 3D modeling of the human jaw from video imaging, two provisional patents on shape modeling and visualization for virtual colonoscopy, one provisional patent on detection, segmentation and classification of lung nodules from low dose CT scans, and one provisional patent on measuring the human vital signs from thermal imaging. He is a regular reviewer for the NSF and NIH, and various technical journals and international conferences. Dr. Farag was an associate editor of the IEEE Transactions on Image Processing. He is a Senior Member of the IEEE and SME. Dr. Farag has been principal investigator of over $6M of extramural funding and co-principal investigator of over $2M. He introduced 11 new subjects into the ECE curriculum at the University of Louisville, graduated 25 MS and 15 PhD students (as of Spring 2008), trained a number of undergraduate Co-Op students and eight postdoctoral fellows. His research has been featured on local and national media and by the NSF. He has co-authored over 250 technical papers in the field of image understanding and co-edited two volumes on Deformable Models for Biomedical Applications (Springer 2007). Dr. Farag CV
