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 25 Ph.D. and 43 M.S. students, and has published 94 journal and over 200 conference publications (with high citations, h=50, g=88), 20 books chapters and edited 5 books. His work has been funded by numerous agencies including NIH, NSF, ONR, DOD, ARDA (IARPA), DARPA, NIST, FDOT etc.
