Biographical Note

Georgios K. Ouzounis
obtained a bachelor in Electrical and Electronic Eng. (BEng.) and a M.Phil. degree in computer science from the department of Computing and Electrical Engineering, Heriot Watt University, Edinburgh, Scotland in 1998 and 2001 respectively. He received his Ph.D. on image analysis and connected morphological filters from the Johann Bernoulli Institute ofMathematics and Computing Science, University of Groningen, The Netherlands, in 2009. From January 2008 to September 2009 he worked at the Democritus University of Thrace - 2nd Department of Surgery,University General Hospital of Alexandroupoli, Greece, as a medical image analyst developing 3-D CT segmentation methods for diagnostic purposes of interest to the Urological Clinic. From September 2009 to September 2012 he was appointed as a researcher at the Geospatial Image Analysis Group of the Global Security and Crisis Management Unit - Joint Research Centre, European Commission, in Ispra, Italy, where he worked on the development of advanced VHR satellite and aerial image analysis algorithms. Since October 2012, he is working in DigitalGlobe as a research scientist on related application areas.  

Georgios K. Ouzounis has invented three major algorithms, the dual-input Max-Tree algorithm, the one-pass method for computing Differential Area Profiles (DAP) by Area Zone Decomposition, and the Alpha-Tree. He was the architect of all computational engines and image analysis algorithms related to the DAP vector fields that were used by the JRC Image Query (IQ) system to populate the very first VHR Global Human Settlement Layer (GHSL).
