The Institute for Robotics and Intelligent Machines presents a seminar by Anthony J. Yezzi of Georgia Tech. The event will be held in the Marcus Nanotechnology Building, Rooms 1116-1118, from 12:15-1:15 p.m. and is open to the public.
Anthony J. Yezzi was born in Gainsville, Florida and grew up in Minneapolis, Minnesota. He obtained both his Bachelor's degree and his Ph.D. in the Department of Electrical Engineering at the University of Minnesota with minors in mathematics and music.
After completing his Ph.D., he continued his research as a post-doctoral research associate in the Laboratory for Information and Decision Systems at Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Boston.
His research interests fall broadly within the fields of image processing and computer vision. In particular, he is interested in curve and surface evolution theory and partial differential equation techniques as they apply to topics within these fields, such as segmentation, image smoothing and enhancement, optical flow, stereo disparity, shape from shading, object recognition, and visual tracking. Much of Yezzi's work is tailored to problems in medical imaging, including cardiac ultrasound, MRI, and CT.
Yezzi joined the Georgia Tech faculty in the fall of 1999 where he has taught courses in digital signal processing and is working to develop advanced courses in computer vision and medical image processing. He consults with industry in the areas of visual inspection and medical imaging. His hobbies include classical guitar, opera, and martial arts.
