Short Biography: Carlos E. Thomaz is Professor of Statistical Pattern Recognition at the Department of Electrical Engineering, FEI University Center, Sao Paulo, Brazil. He is head of the Image Processing Lab at FEI. Carlos Thomaz received, in 1993, his B.Sc. degree in Electronic Engineering from Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro (PUC-Rio), Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. After working for six years in industry, he obtained the M.Sc. degree in Electrical Engineering from PUC-Rio in 1999. In October 2000, he joined the Department of Computing at Imperial College London, UK, where he obtained the Ph.D. degree in Statistical Pattern Recognition in 2004. His main research interests are in Pattern Recognition, Cognitive Perception and Machine Learning and over these years he has published more than 120 journal and conference articles on these topics. Professor Thomaz was awarded, in 2012, a University of Nottingham Brazil Visiting Fellowship to work during three months in the Sir Peter Mansfield Magnetic Resonance Centre, UK. He has served as a member of organising and program committees at a number of national and international conferences. From 2015 to 2018, he was awarded a Newton Advanced Fellowship from the Royal Society, UK.

Research Opportunities

Our research activities are mainly related to high-dimensional data analysis. We essentially investigate, propose and implement statistical and machine learning methods to extract, visualize, understand and classify patterns on signal and information (visual and cognitive) processing. Some recent projects of our research group have been developed in collaboration with the Department of Computing, Imperial College London, UK, the Department of Computer Science, National Laboratory for Scientific Computing (LNCC), Brazil, and the Department of Paediatrics, Federal University of Sao Paulo (UNIFESP), Brazil. For further details, please see our Research or Image Processing Lab homepages, or contact me directly.
