Michael Bronstein

Michael Bronstein is an assistant professor in the Institute of Computational Science, Faculty of Informatics, University of Lugano (USI), Switzerland. He received the Ph.D. with distinction (2007) from the Department of Computer Science, Technion (Israel Institute of Technology). His main research interests are theoretical and computational methods in metric geometry and their application to problems in computer vision, pattern recognition, shape analysis, computer graphics, image processing, and machine learning. Prof. Bronstein has authored over 50 publications in leading journals and conferences, over a dozen of patents and the book "Numerical geometry of non-rigid shapes" (published by Springer Verlag in 2008). His research was recognized by numerous awards and was featured in CNN, SIAM News, and Wired. Michael Bronstein was the co-chair of the Workshop on Non-rigid shapes and deformable image alignment (NORDIA) in 2008-2010. In 2009, Michael Bronstein held a visiting appointment at Stanford university.

In addition to academic activities, in 2004-2009 he served as a scientist and Vice President of video technology at the Silicon Valley start-up company Novafora Inc, leading a team of researchers and engineers developing Internet-scale computer vision and video analysis applications. Technology developed by Prof. Bronstein has been used in the foundation of several start-up companies, in which he has been involved as advisor and co-founder.
