Prof Alin Achim received the B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in electrical engineering from "Politehnica" University of Bucharest, Romania, in 1995 and 1996, respectively, and a 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, U.K., as a Lecturer, he became a Senior Lecturer (Associate Professor) in 2010, and a Reader in Biomedical Image Computing in 2015. From August 2018 he holds the Chair in Computational Imaging at the University of Bristol.

Alin has co-authored over 130 scientific publications, including more than 30 journal papers. He is an associate editor of the IEEE Transactions on Image Processing, an elected member of the Bio Imaging and Signal Processing Technical Committee of the IEEE Signal Processing Society, an affiliated member (invited) of the same Society’s Signal Processing Theory & Methods Technical Committee and a member of the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society’s Image Analysis and Data Fusion Technical Committee. Alin has served on numerous conferences technical programme committees in signal and image processing and as session chair at various international conferences; (e.g. EUSIPCO, ICIP, ICASSP) He is member of the IET and a Senior Member of the IEEE.
