Bernhard Burgeth
received his diploma and doctoral degree in mathematics from
the University of ErlangenNürnberg (Germany) in 1991 and 1996,
respectively.
He worked as research assistant at the University of
ErlangenNürnberg, as researcher (DFG research grant) at
McGill University, Montreal (Canada), and the Technical
University Eindhoven (The Netherlands).
At the Karlsruhe Research Center he was involved for four years
with the numerical simulation of combustion processes.
He joint the Mathematical Image Analysis Group of
Professor Weickert in 2002 where he is currently an assistant
professor at Saarland University (Saarbrücken, Germany).
His research interests comprises mathematical modelling,
probabilistic concepts, and methods based on differential
equations in image processing.
More recent research is focused on image processing tools for
tensor/matrix fields and their applications.
His habilitation thesis is entitled
"Scale Space Analysis and Matrix Field Processing".
