Erik Meijering was born in Heemskerk, the Netherlands, in 1971. He received a MSc degree (cum laude) in Electrical Engineering from Delft University of Technology, the Netherlands, in 1996, and a PhD degree in Medical Imaging from Utrecht University, the Netherlands, in 2000.
From November 2000 to September 2002 he was with the Biomedical Imaging Group of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL) in Lausanne, Switzerland. In October 2002 he joined the Biomedical Imaging Group Rotterdam of the Erasmus MC - University Medical Center Rotterdam, as an Assistant Professor. In June 2008 he became an Associate Professor in the same group. His research interests include many aspects of computer vision, image processing and image analysis, and their applications in cellular and molecular imaging.
He received a Best Paper Award from the Computer Vision Research Foundation (the Netherlands) in 1999. In 2000 he received a TALENT-stipend from the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO) for research on adaptive interpolation. Currently his main research subject is spatiotemporal modeling and segmentation of fluorescence microscopy images for the quantification and analysis of subcellular dynamical processes, for which he received a VIDI-grant from NWO for the period 2005-2010.
Dr. Meijering is a Senior Member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBS), and the IEEE Signal Processing Society (SPS). From 1997 to 2008 he was a member of the International Association for Pattern Recognition (IAPR). He was Special Sessions Chair for the 2002 and the 2004 IEEE International Symposium on Biomedical Imaging (ISBI), and Technical Program Chair for that meeting in 2006 and 2010. He was/is an Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Medical Imaging (since 2004), the IEEE Transactions on Image Processing (term 2008-2011), and the International Journal on Biomedical Imaging (2006-2009), and was a Guest Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Image Processing for its September 2005 Special Issue on Molecular and Cellular Bioimaging. He also served/serves in a great variety of conference, advisory, and review boards.
