I was born in 1956 in Utrecht, the Netherlands and received my M.Sc and Ph.D. degree from the University of Utrecht in 1983 and 1987, respectively, both in physics. My PhD thesis was about noise analysis in Si-MOSFETS at ultra low temperatures. In 1987 I joined the Electrical Engineering faculty of Delft University of Technology as an assistant professor. In this period I was responsible for the laboratories in the Electrical Engineering bachelor and developed amplifier design and chip design laboratories, among others. In 1994 I became an assistant professor in the Information and Communication Theory Group of the same faculty where I worked mainly on stereoscopic imaging within several national and European projects. Since 1997 I’m heading the computer vision and image processing section of this group as an associate professor. My interest is in computer vision, low-level image processing, image segmentation, stereoscopic and 3D imaging, motion and disparity estimation, structure from motion/disparity/silhouette, real time algorithms for computer vision applications, gesture and body pose recognition and medical image analyis. I published over 100 papers in international journals and conferences. I was a reviewer for the national scientific boards in the Netherlands, Belgium and Greece. I co-organized several national and international conferences in the area of computer vision and image processing and supervised over 50 master students and co-supervised 10 PhD students
I was involved in the development of a new Media and Knowledge Engineering master (MKE) in 2001 and I was the coordinator of this master until 2011.
In 2009 the ICT group was split into the Multimedia Signal Processing (MSP) group and Pattern recognition and Bioinformatics (PRB) group and currently I’m a member of PRB group and heading the Computer Vision Lab.
In 2011 I became the director of Computer Science education, responsible for the Bachelor and Master curricula in Computer Science
