Fulbright Specialist Program Year 2018
Geoff Dougherty is a Fulbright Specialist at Universitas Diponegoro (Undip) and Universitas Airlangga (Unair). From March 19 through April 14, 2018, he will work hand in hand with both universities in assessing and developing the current academic curricula and educational materials for the image processing study at both universities. He will also deliver seminars and workshops on image processing, pattern recognition, writing for international journals, books and other kinds of publications.
He joined California State University (CSU) Channel Islands as Professor of Physics and Medical Imaging in 2002. He has been a tireless advocate for applied science and technology and actively pursuing research in medical imaging and image analysis, including the assessment of texture in clinical images of trabecular bone and the quantitation of tortuosity in blood vessels. He developed a new major in Applied Physics and a program in Medical Imaging. The hallmark of these is an applied, interdisciplinary approach which incorporates the latest advances in science, technology, and the medical sciences, and addresses local employment needs. He is a Senior Member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), and the Founding Chair of the Engineering in Medicine and Biology chapter of the Ventura County section of the IEEE. He has published numerous articles in international journals and several books and book chapters and has won a variety of competitive research grants.
