Dr. Gianfranco Doretto joined the Lane Department of Computer Science and Electrical Engineering of West Virginia University (WVU) in 2010. His research interests span several computer vision areas, with a current focus on statistical modeling of video signals for intelligent systems.
Prior to joining WVU he was a lead scientist of the Visualization and Computer Vision Laboratory at General Electric Global Research (2005-2010), where he performed research, and led a team of researchers on projects sponsored by the US Government and private parties. He has been responsible for the research, development, and transition to product of technology that supports advanced aerial and ground based video surveillance applications.
In 2000 he joined the UCLA Computer Science Department as a research assistant, where he introduced a modeling framework for what are now known as dynamic textures. In 2000 Dr. Doretto spent eight months with the Department of Electrical Engineering of the Washington University in St. Louis, developing an augmented reality platform. Previously, he was with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering of the University of Padua (1996-1999), first as a research assistant, then as a research staff member, where he developed range data registration approaches for 3D object modeling.
