Dr. Mark Eramian
Dr. Mark Eramian completed a B.Sc. in Computer Science and Geophysics in 1997 and a Ph.D. in Computer Science in 2002, both from the University of Western Ontario, London, Ontario, Canada. Since 2002 he has been a faculty member in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada. Dr. Eramian’s research is comprised largely of the application of image processing and computer vision to problems in medical and other non-computer science domains. Dr. Eramian leads the Imaging, Multimedia and Graphics group at the University of Saskatchewan. Current and recent projects outside of DADAISM include automated seed identification (with the Canadian Food Inspection Agency), improving methods for evaluation of semiautomatic image segmentation algorithms, algorithms for texture enhancement, estimation of cost savings for seeding crops using satellite imagery (with Seed Hawk Inc., Langbank, Saskatchewan) and automatic classification of images of odontogenic cysts (cysts originating in the tissues of the jaw and gums). Dr. Eramian leads the DADAISM team responsible for image feature extraction and content-based image retrieval.
