He is an Associate Professor and Director of Graduate Studies in the Dept. of Electrical and Computer Engineering and a faculty member in the Biomedical Engineering Interdisciplinary Program at The University of Arizona. In addition, he is Director of Image Analysis for Cancer Imaging Shared Services at the Arizona Cancer Center. Recently, he served as Co-Director of Connection One, a National Science Foundation multi-university research center on communication circuits and systems.

He received a B.S. in Electrical Engineering from The University of Texas at Austin in 1984, a M.S in Electrical Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1986 and a Ph.D in Electrical Engineering from The University of Texas at Austin in 1990.

Current research involves signal/image/video processing and analysis, combined with pattern recognition techniques, to develop novel solutions to interdisciplinary problems in biology, medicine, homeland security, and consumer electronics. Recent projects include non-rigid registration and tracking in cardiac magnetic resonance images, segmentation and classification of sub-cellular structures in three-dimensional confocal microscopic images for analyzing cytogenetic abnormalities, segmentation of cancerous lesions in magnetic resonance images, cross-modality registration of medical images, segmentation of internal hemoglobin in electron microscope images, and content-adaptive improved error concealment methods for video communication.

He is a Senior Member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). He was as a member of the IEEE Technical Committee on Image, Video, and Multidimensional Signal Processing. In addition, he was as Associate Editor of the IEEE Trans. on Image Processing. He was General Chair of the 2007 IEEE Intl. Conf. on Image Processing (ICIP), Vice Chair of the 2004 Southwest Symp. on Image Analysis and Interpretation (SSIAI), and has served on numerous other conference organizing committees and IEEE committees. Among the honors and awards he has received are the Andersen Consulting Outstanding Faculty Award, the IEEE/HKN Outstanding Teaching Award, and a Best Paper award as co-author at the 2010 SPIE Medical Imaging conference.
