Federico Bolelli


Federico Bolelli is an Assistant Professor at the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, Italy, where he works within the AImagelab research group.

From the same University, he received the B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees cum laude in Computer Engineering at the Department of Engineering "Enzo Ferrari" and the PhD degree in ICT from the International Doctorate School.

His research interests include image processing, algorithms and optimization, medical imaging, and historical document analysis. Among his research topics, he has worked on the optimization of binary image processing algorithms, modelling innovative approaches that significantly improve the performance on both CPU and GPU architectures. He has also worked on skin lesion segmentation and classification for melanoma skin cancer detection and handwritten text recognition of historical documents.

From 2019 to 2022, he worked at the DeepHealth H2020 European Project where, among others, he was responsible for the development of the European Computer Vision Library (ECVL).

In March 2022 he joined the H2020 DECIDER European Project.

He is a member of IEEE and CVPL, the Italian Association for Computer Vision, Pattern Recognition and Machine Learning.
