Stathis Hadjidemetriou received his Ph.D. in computer science from Columbia University in the City of New York. His thesis was in the fields of image analysis and computer vision. He also has a B.Eng. (Honours) in Electrical Engineering from McGill University in Montreal and an M.Sc. in Electrical Engineering from Columbia University. As post-doctoral fellow at Yale University and as research scientist at University hospitals he specialized in bio-medical image analysis. He has worked on image analysis for biological microscopy related to cancer. He has also worked on organ level biomedical MRI for neurological conditions of the brain as well as for extending the use of quantitative MRI for the whole body.
The methodologies he developed have been on the reconstruction and restoration of MRI data to remove imaging artifacts, the registration of multi-contrast MRI data, as well as on image analysis. The image analysis has included segmentation, motion tracking both for microscopy and torso MRI, as well as for MRI atlas computation.
He is currently Assistant Professor of Computer Science, and Director of the MSc Computer Science & Business Intelligence (CSBT) program at CIIM. He continues the development and application of methodology both for image analysis as well as for more general aspects of artificial intelligence.
He has published numerous research papers in scientific journals and presented his work in numerous scientific conferences. He serves as a reviewer for various international conferences and journals.
He has extensive teaching experience in computer science, electrical engineering and biomedical engineering.
