Biography Summary

David Clausi is a Professor in the Department of Systems Design Engineering at the University of Waterloo.

His research interests lie in computer vision, image processing, and pattern recognition with an emphasis on the automated interpretation of satellite imagery.

Professor Clausi is a multidisciplinary researcher, publishing refereed journal and conference papers in the diverse fields including remote sensing, computer vision, and algorithm design. His research work has led to successful commercial implementations including the creation and selling of a startup company (CREZ). After successful product deployment and sales, CREZ was purchased by Pointstreak Sports Technologies in 2011.

As of result of his teaching and research work, Professor Clausi has received multiple awards including the “Research Excellence and Service to the Research Community” award from the Canadian Image Processing and Pattern Recognition Society (CIPPRS) in 2010. He has also received numerous Outstanding Performance Awards and Distinguished Performance Awards as well as two teaching awards (Sanford Fleming Teaching Excellence Award. University of Calgary Teaching Excellence Award).
