Alessandro Foi is Professor of Signal Processing at Tampere University (TAU), Finland. He leads the Signal and Image Restoration group and he is the director of TAU Imaging Research Platform.
He received the M.Sc. degree in Mathematics from the Università degli Studi di Milano, Italy, in 2001, the Ph.D. degree in Mathematics from the Politecnico di Milano in 2005, and the D.Sc.Tech. degree in Signal Processing from Tampere University of Technology, Finland, in 2007.
His research interests include mathematical and statistical methods for signal processing, functional and harmonic analysis, and computational modeling of the human visual system. His work focuses on spatially adaptive (anisotropic, nonlocal) algorithms for the restoration and enhancement of digital images, on noise modeling for imaging devices, and on the optimal design of statistical transformations for the stabilization, normalization, and analysis of random data.
He is the Editor-in-Chief of the IEEE Transactions on Image Processing.
He previously served as a Senior Area Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Computational Imaging and as an Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Image Processing, the SIAM Journal on Imaging Sciences, and the IEEE Transactions on Computational Imaging.
I have Professorship (Tenured) in Materials Characterization. My research areas include microstructural characterization and NDT (non-destructive testing) of various materials together with activities in material prosessing, performance and failure analysis. My special expertise area is on electron microscopy including the leadership in university-level microscopy infrastructure (Tampere Microscopy Center). I also act as Vice Dean for Research in Faculty of Engineering and Natural Sciences.
