Javier Garcia

Javier GarcĂ­a Monreal
Javier Garcia was born in Corella (Navarra, Spain) in 1965. After obtaining his MS degree he worked for a short period in the Industrial Association of Optics (AIDO), performing speckle pattern interferometry applications, holography and high power industrial laser applications. Then he engaged with the University of Valencia, where he obtained his PhD in Physics in 1994 and later held a teaching position. He holds nowadays a Full Professor position at the University of Valencia and leads the Optoelectronic Image Processing Group (GPOEI) at the Department of Optics. His fields of interest are centered in optical image and signal processing. A large part of the academic research has been on optical pattern recognition, with the implementation of different synthetic correlation filters for attaining invariance against distortion in the detection for the monochromatic and the color cases. These studies include harmonic expansions and specifically designed filter for rotation, scale and projection invariance. Professor GarcĂ­a has also made contributions in the use of space-frequency based representations by means of the fractional Fourier transform. He made contributions in optical multichannel processing; using DOE based systems for implementation of color image processing, threshold decomposition and morphological processing. His main line of academic research nowadays is optical superresolution in coherent imaging. In addition he has participated in the investigation of spatial pattern formation in photorefractive resonators. He has supervised nine Doctorate Thesis on optical image processing and numerous Master Thesis. He authors over 100 papers on peer reviewed journal (H-index 22) and contributed with a corresponding number of presentations in international conferences.
He has enforced the international projection of the group by performing frequent research stays, most relevant being on the Institute of Geophysics of the University of Warsaw (Poland), the Fresnel Institute in Marseille (France) and in Tel Aviv and Bar Ilan Universities in Tel Aviv (Israel). It is worth noting the running collaboration with the Group of Professor Zeev Zalevsky at Bar Ilan University. This collaboration, very active along the last ten years, is very fruitful both from academic an technology transfer point of view. Aside of a large number of publications, the joint work has produced several patent families (several in late stages for its possible commercialization and 2 of them already licensed to private companies). He has been engaged with several companies including the startup Lenslet Labs, developing ultrafast optodigital processors, and PrimeSense, where he participated in the development of the Kinect by Microsoft 3D sensor. He leads the Optoelectronic Image Processing Group obtaining funding from different sources, private and public, ranging from local to European projects.

At the University of Valencia he has had a long and fruitful trajectory serving the institution in several positions. Among them we may highlight his appointments as Member of the Senate (1990-2010), Head of the Optics Department in the Faculty of Physics (1 October 1990 - 12 July 1996 and 15 November 1997 - 30 October 1998), Dean of the Faculty of Physics (10 March 2004 - 31 December 2005), and Vice-rector for Teaching Staff (23 March 2006 - 31 de March 2010. Carlos Ferreira has carried out research in the fields of holography, optical and digital processing and physical optics. In special his research has been related with the diffractive optics, digital and optical processors and Fourier Optics, pattern recognition, optical systems and superresolution.
This research has produced more than 150 articles published in both peer reviewed journals such as 'Optics Express', 'Optics Letters', 'Applied Optics', 'JOSA-A', 'Optics Communications', 'Journal of Modern Optics', 'Optical Engineering', and in extended proceedings of conferences such as ‘Proceedings SPIE’. He is also co-author of more than 120 communications presented at a large number of national and international congresses. He is the co-author of 13 book chapters. He has been the main researcher in 17 research projects and has participated in more than thirty research projects, infrastructure grants, complementary actions and research group grants subsidised by the Education and Science, Science and Technology and Science and Innovation Ministries of Spanish Government and other projects from the Government of Valencia and other institutions. From the very beginning, Prof. Ferreira was convinced of the importance of international collaboration for himself and for his students. Thus, he has done several research stays: at the Laboratoire d'Optique (UniversitĂ© Pierre et Marie Curie, Paris, France, 1 month, 1978), dealing with the study of an optical tracer; three times at the Instytut Geofizyki (Uniwersytet Warszawski, Warsaw, Poland, 2 months in 1983, 1 month in 1988 and 1 month in 1994), in a fruitful collaboration mainly dealing with the study of anamorphic Fourier processors for pattern recognition and an optoelectronic processor for morphologic and rank filtering; at the Laboratoire de Recherches en Optique et Laser (UniversitĂ© Laval, QuĂ©bec, Canada, 3 months, 1985), dealing with rotational invariant pattern recognition; at the Faculty of Engineering (University of Tel-Aviv, Tel-Aviv, Israel, 1 month, 1995), dealing with the study of anamorphic fractional Fourier transform systems; and at the School of Engineering (Bar-Ilan University, Ramat-Gan, Israel, 2 months, 2012), dealing with the study of irregular astigmatism and superresolution with random patterns. With regard to Prof. Ferreira teaching activities, they have been centered on the teaching of physics and optics in the science degree courses taught at the University of Valencia, mainly in the Physics Degree and in the Optics and Optometry Degree. He has also taught in several masters and doctoral programs.
As a result of the latter he has been supervisor or co-supervisor of 19 Master Thesis and 11 PhD Thesis. He has been the Chairman of the Organizing Committee of the International Congress “IV Euro-American Workshop on Optoelectronic Information Processing: Optics for Information Systems” (Valencia, Spain, 2001). He has been member of the Scientific Committee in more than 15 national and international congresses. He is also a member of various Spanish and international scientific societies such as the Royal Spanish Physical Society (RSEF), the Spanish Optical Society (SEDOPTICA), the European Optical Society (EOS), the Optical Society of America (OSA, Fellow member) and the International Society of Optics and Photonics (SPIE, Fellow member), where he has been an active member serving at several positions. At the Spanish Optical Society (SEDOPTICA), we may highlight his appointments as President of the Image Techniques Committee (1998-2001) and President of SEDOPTICA (28 April 2008 – 8 April 2011). He has been also Representative of the Spanish Territorial Committee at the International Commission for Optics (ICO) (1998-2001).
