CV for Cris Luengo


I have an MSc (1998) and a PhD (2004) degree in image analysis from Delft University of Technology (The Netherlands). In 2011 I received the Swedish title of Docent, which confers the right to direct PhD studies and is equivalent to the French and German Habilitation.


I am currently Director of Image Analysis at Flagship Biosciences Inc., in Westminster, Colorado.

Previously (2008–2015), I was Associate Professor at the Centre for Image Analysis (Uppsala, Sweden), a collaboration between Uppsala University (UU) and the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU). My office was at the Dept. of Information Technology of UU, and my students came primarily from that department and the Engineering department.

Before that (2004–2008), I was a postdoctoral fellow at the Life Sciences Division, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley, California), where I worked with the Berkeley Drosophila Transcription Network Project for nearly five years.

While pursuing my PhD studies, I was employed for 1/4 of my time as a teacher at the Department of Applied Physics (later Applied Sciences) (2001–2003)


I have been on the editorial board of Pattern Recognition Letters (Elsevier), first as Associate Editor (2011–2013), then as Area Editor (2013–2015).

I have co-organized the 11th International Symposium on Mathematical Morphology (ISMM), in Uppsala, May 27–29 2013. I was the Program Chair. The proceedings to this conference were published by Springer in their LNCS series. After the conference I edited a special issue in Pattern Recognition Letters on the topics of the conference. I am on the Steering Committee for ISMM.

I was Workshops, Tutorials and Contests Co-Chair for the 22nd International Conference on Pattern Recognition (ICPR, Stockholm, August 2014), and Tutorials Co-Chair for the 23rd ICPR (Cancún, Mexico, December 2016).

I am Senior Member of the IEEE, and also involved with the IEEE Signal Processing Society, ISAC (International Society for Advancement of Cytometry), NVPHBV (Dutch Society for Pattern Recognition and Image Processing), and SSBA (Swedish Society for Automated Image Analysis).

I speak Dutch, Spanish, English and Swedish.
