where he holds the Montreal Chair in Sciences.
He held a post-doctoral position at UC Berkeley and a visiting
professorship at Stanford University.
He has worked in various areas of image
and shape analysis in computer vision, image processing,
and computer graphics.
Kimmel's interest in recent years has been non-rigid shape
processing and analysis,
medical imaging and computational biometry, numerical optimization of problems
with a geometric flavor, and applications of metric geometry and differential geometry.
Kimmel is an IEEE Fellow for his contributions to image processing and non-rigid shape analysis.
He is an author of two books, an editor of one, and an author of numerous articles.
He is the founder of the Geometric Image Processing Lab.
and a founder and advisor of several successful image processing and analysis companies.
