The Iris Einheuser Professor of Computer Science, Duke University. Ph.D. - Carnegie Mellon University.
Carlo Tomasi is professor of computer science. He received a “Laurea” degree in Electrical Engineering at the University of Padova, Italy, in 1981, a MS degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, in 1984, and a PhD in Computer Science from Carnegie Mellon University in 1991. Before joining Duke, he was on the computer science faculty at Cornell and Stanford.
His research spans computer vision from visual motion estimation, image retrieval, and activity recognition to shape reconstruction, stereo vision, texture analysis, and medical imaging. His 100+ papers have been cited more than 43,000 times according to Google Scholar, with more than 15,000 citations for his top three publications alone. He won two Helmholtz prizes awarded by the International Conference on Computer Vision for papers that have had significant long-term impact on computer vision. He holds nine patents and has been principal investigator or co-investigator on more than 30 research grants.
