BiographyOlivier Lézoray received his B.Sc. in mathematics and computer science, M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees from the Department
of Computer Science, University of Caen, France, in 1992, 1996, and 2000, respectively. From September 1999 to August 2000, he was an assistant professor with the Department of Computer Science at the University of Caen. From September 2000 to August 2009, he was an associate professor at the Cherbourg Institute of Technology of the University of Caen, in the Communication Networks and Services Department.
In July 2008, he was a visiting research fellow at the University of Sydney. Since September 2009, he has been a full professor at the Cherbourg Institute of Technology of the University of Caen, in the Communication Networks and Services Department. He also serves as Chair of the Institute Research Committee.
In 2011 he cofounded Datexim and is a member of the scientific board of the company, which brought state-of-art image and data processing to market with applications in digital pathology.
His research focuses on discrete models on graphs for image processing and analysis, image data classification by machine learning, and computer-aided diagnosis. He is a contributor to four books, and he has published over 100 papers in refereed journals and conference proceedings in the areas of image processing and machine learning.
In 2008, he received the IBM Best Paper Student Award at ICIP 2008 with V-T. Ta and A. Elmoataz. Dr. Lézoray is a member and Local Liaison Officer of the European Association for Signal, Speech and Image Processing (EURASIP), the IEEE Signal Processing Society's, the IEEE Communication Society Multimedia Communications Technical Committee, and the International Association for Pattern Recognition (IAPR).
He was the program cochair of the International Conference on Image and Signal Processing (ICISP) in 2008, 2010, and 2012. He was a guest coeditor of the EURASIP Journal on Advances in Signal Processing for a special issue on Machine Learning in Image Processing, of Signal Processing for a special issue on the Processing and Analysis of High-Dimensional Masses of Image and Signal Data, and of Computerized Medical Imaging and Graphics for a special issue on Whole Slide Microscopic Image Processing. He serves as a reviewer for various scientific international journals.
