has received the M.S. degree in Computer and Systems Engineering from the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and the Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He is currently Professor and Vice Chair in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of South Florida Department of Oncological Sciences, USF Health. Professor Goldgof is a member of H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center and Research Institute and during 2002-2003 he held there a position of Professor in Bioinformatics. During 1995-1996, he held a visiting positions at the Department of Computer Science at the University of California at Santa Barbara and at the Department of Computer Science at the University of Bern in Switzerland.

Professor Goldgof research interests include Medical Image Analysis, Image and Video Processing, Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition, Ethics and Computing, Bioinformatics and Bioengineering More specifically, research interests are related to two broad thrusts. First thrust is in the area of biomedical image analysis and machine learning with application in MR, CT, PET and microscopy images, radiomics and bioinformatics. Second thrust is the area of motion analysis with biometrics, face analysis and surveilance applications. Additional interests include high performance issues of image analysis and machine learning algorithms and their performance evaluation. Dr. Goldgof has graduated 28 Ph.D. and 44 M.S. students, and has published over 95 journal and over 220 conference publications (with high citations, h=50, g=92), 20 books chapters and edited 5 books. His work has been funded by numerous agencies including NIH, NSF, ONR, DOD, VA, ARDA (IARPA), DARPA, NIST, FDOT, etc.
