Professor W. Clem Karl (ECE, SE) has been elected editor-in-chief of IEEE Transactions on Image Processing, the leading journal of image and video processing research.

“With image processing playing such a big role in the world, it’s an exciting time to be editor-in-chief,” said Karl, who previously served as associate editor of the publication.

Karl is an active member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), a professional association for electrical engineers that boasts more than 400,000 members in 160 countries.

“I believe in giving back to the professional community and am looking forward to interacting with my colleagues and learning new things,” said Karl of his new position, a three-year appointment that begins in January 2013.

In addition to his latest role, Karl is also a member of the board of the IEEE Signal Processing Society, member of the IEEE Bio Signal and Image Processing Technical Committee, and member of the Steering Committee for IEEE Transactions on Medical Imaging.

Karl’s research at Boston University has focused on statistical signal processing; inverse problems; biomedical signal and image processing; multidimensional signal and image processing; and synthetic aperture radar. In 2000, he was awarded the department’s ECE Award for Excellence in Teaching.
