Marios S. Pattichis

Prof. Marios S. Pattichis

Marios Pattichis received the B.Sc.(High Hons. and Special Hons.) in computer sciences and the B.A. (High Hons.) degree in mathematics, both in 1991, the M.S. degree in electrical engineering in 1993, and the Ph.D. degree in computer engineering in 1998, all from the University of Texas, Austin. He is currently a Professor with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of New Mexico (UNM), Albuquerque. His current research interests include digital image, video processing, communications, dynamically reconfigurable computer architectures, and biomedical and space image-processing applications.

Dr. Pattichis is currently a senior associate editor for the IEEE Signal Processing Letters. He has been an associate editor for the IEEE Transactions on Image Processing, IEEE Transactions on Industrial Informatics, and has also served as a guest associate editor for the IEEE Transactions on Information Technology in Biomedicine. He was the general chair of the 2008 IEEE Southwest Symposium on Image Analysis and Interpretation. He was a recipient of the 2016 Lawton-Ellis and the 2004 distinguished teaching awards from the department of electrical and computer engineering at UNM. For his development of the digital logic design labs at UNM, he was recognized by the Xilinx Corporation in 2003 and by the UNM School of Engineering's Harrison faculty excellent award in 2006. He was a founding Co-PI of the Configurable Space Microsystems Innovations & Applications Center (COSMIAC) at UNM. At UNM, he is currently the director of ivPCL (pattichi@unm.edu, CV in PDF, CV in docx, ORCID, Google Scholar, ResearchGate, Academia.edu, LinkedIn).
