Ron Kimmel is a Professor of Computer Science at the Technion where he holds the Montreal Chair in Sciences. He held a post-doctoral position at UC Berkeley and a visiting professorship at Stanford University. He has worked in various areas of image and shape analysis in computer vision, image processing, and computer graphics. Kimmel’s interest in recent years has been non-rigid shape processing and analysis, medical imaging, learning, understanding, numerical optimization of problems with a geometric flavor, and applications of metric geometry and differential geometry. Kimmel is an IEEE Fellow for his contributions to image processing and non-rigid shape analysis. He is an author of two books and numerous articles. He is the founder of the Geometric Image Processing Lab. and a founder and advisor of several successful image processing and analysis companies. Since the acquisition of his co-founded company InVision 5 years ago he serves as a part time senior principal engineer at Intel’s Perceptual Computing, were he now co-directs a research team.
