Biography

Biography

Max A. Viergever received the MSc degree in applied mathematics in 1972 and the DSc degree in technical sciences with a thesis on cochlear mechanics in 1980, both from Delft University of Technology. From 1972 to 1988 he was Assistant/Associate Professor of Applied Mathematics at this university.

From 1988 to 2018 he was Professor and Head of the Department of Medical Imaging at Utrecht University, where he also held professorships in Physics and Computer Science. He is founder of the Image Sciences Institute of the University Medical Center Utrecht, of the PhD programme Medical Imaging (ImagO) and of the MSc programmes Biomedical Image Sciences and Medical Imaging.
Since May 2018, he is Professor Emeritus of Medical Imaging at Utrecht University.

He is (co)author of more than 800 refereed scientific articles on biophysics and medical imaging, guest editor of nine journal issues, (co)author/editor of 18 books, and has served as supervisor of 165 PhD theses and 175 MSc theses. His research interests comprise all aspects of medical imaging.

Max Viergever is Honorary Senator of the University of Ljubljana, Honorary Member of the Dutch Society for Pattern Recognition and Image Processing, and recipient of the Catharijne Award, of the IEEE EMBS Distinguished Service Award, of the IEEE EMBS Academic Career Achievement Award, and of the MICCAI Enduring Impact Award. He is Elected Fellow of the Institute of Physics (IOP), of the International Association of Pattern Recognition (IAPR), of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), of the Medical Image Computing and Computer Assisted Intervention (MICCAI) Society, and of the European Alliance for Medical and Biological Engineering & Science (EAMBES).

He is (co)author of four awarded journal articles (Comput. & Graphics 1996, J. Comput. Assist. Tomogr. 1997, Diabetes 2007, J. Nucl. Med. 2015) and of >20 best conference presentations, and has received three citation awards (IEEE Trans. Med. Imaging 1988, 1995; Med. Image Anal. 1998). He has been board member of IAPR, IPMI and MICCAI, editor of the Springer book series Computational Imaging and Vision, editor-in-chief of the IEEE Transactions on Medical Imaging, editor of the Journal of Mathematical Imaging and Vision, and has acted as associate editor, guest editor or editorial board member of fifteen more international journals.
