Professor Goldgof research interests include Image and Video Analysis, Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition, Biomedical Imaging and Bioinformatics, and Bioengineering. More specifically, research interests are related to two broad thrusts. First thrust is the area of nonrigid motion analysis (especially, elastic, facial and fluid motion), with biometrics and security applications. Second thrust is in the area of biomedical image analysis related to tissue segmentation in MR, CT, PET and microscopy images. Additional interests include high performance issues of image analysis and machine learning algorithms. Dr. Goldgof has graduated 19 Ph.D. and 41 M.S. students, and has published 70 journal and over 170 conference publications (with high citations, h=34, g=60, using Google Scholar), 18 books chapters and edited 4 books. His work has been funded by numerous agencies including NSF, NIH, ONR, DOD, ARDA (IARPA), DARPA, NIST, FDOT etc.
