Alin was born in Sinaia, Romania, in 1972. He received the B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees, both in electrical engineering, from "Politehnica" University of Bucharest, Romania, in 1995 and 1996, respectively and the Ph.D. in biomedical engineering from the University of Patras, Greece, in 2003. He then obtained an ERCIM (European Research Consortium for Informatics and Mathematics) postdoctoral fellowship which he spent with the Institute of Information Science and Technologies (ISTI-CNR), Pisa, Italy and with the French National Institute for Research in Computer Science and Control (INRIA), Sophia Antipolis, France. In October 2004 he joined the Department of Electrical & Electronic Engineering at the University of Bristol as a Lecturer. His current research interests span the areas of statistical signal processing with emphasis in estimation and detection theory, multiresolution algorithms with applications in remote sensing and medical imaging, image filtering and enhancement, and segmentation and classification algorithms. He is author or co-author of 18 journal papers and many conference publications.
