Gustau Camps-Valls (IEEE Member'04, IEEE Senior Member'07) received a B.Sc. degree in Physics (1996), in Electronics Engineering (1998), and a Ph.D. degree in Physics (2002) all from the Universitat de València. He is currently an associate professor (hab. Full professor) in the Department of Electronics Engineering. His is a research coordinator in the Image and Signal Processing (ISP) group. He has been Visiting Researcher at the Remote Sensing Laboratory (Univ. Trento, Italy) in 2002, the Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics (Tübingen, Germany) in 2009, and as Invited Professor at the Laboratory of Geographic Information Systems of the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (Lausanne, Switzerland) in 2013.
He is interested in the development of machine learning algorithms for geoscience and remote sensing data analysis. He is an author of 120 journal papers, more than 150 conference papers, 20 international book chapters, and editor of the books "Kernel methods in bioengineering, signal and image processing" (IGI, 2007), "Kernel methods for remote sensing data analysis" (Wiley & Sons, 2009), and "Remote Sensing Image Processing" (MC, 2011). He's a co-editor of the forthcoming book "Digital Signal Processing with Kernel Methods" (Wiley & sons, 2015). He holds a Hirsch's index h=42 (see Google Scholar page), entered the ISI list of Highly Cited Researchers in 2011, and Thomson Reuters ScienceWatch identified one of his papers on kernel-based analysis of hyperspectral images as a Fast Moving Front research. In 2015, he obtained the prestigious European Research Council (ERC) consolidator grant on Statistical learning for Earth observation data analysis. He is a referee and Program Committee member of many international journals and conferences.
Since 2007 he is member of the Data Fusion technical committee of the IEEE GRSS, and since 2009 of the Machine Learning for Signal Processing Technical Committee of the IEEE SPS. He is member of the MTG-IRS Science Team (MIST) of EUMETSAT. He is Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing, IEEE Signal Processing Letters, IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Letters, and invited guest editor for IEEE Journal of Selected Topics in Signal Processing (2012) and IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Magazine (2015).
