BIOGRAPHY
James S. Duncan is the Ebenezer K. Hunt Professor of Biomedical Engineering and a Professor of Diagnostic Radiology and Electrical Engineering at Yale University. Professor Duncan received his B.S.E.E. with honors from Lafayette College (1973), his M.S. (1975) from UCLA and Ph.D. (1982) in Electrical Engineering from the University of Southern California. Professor Duncan has been at Yale University since 1983, and the Ebenezer K. Hunt Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Yale University since 2007. He has served as the Acting Chair and is currently Director of Undergraduate Studies for Biomedical Engineering. His research efforts have been in the areas of computer vision, image processing, and medical imaging, with an emphasis on biomedical image analysis. These efforts have included the segmentation of deformable structure from 3D image data, the tracking of non-rigid motion/deformation from spatiotemporal images, and the development of strategies for image-guided intervention/surgery. He has published over 220 peer-reviewed articles in these areas and has been the principal investigator on a number of peer-reviewed grants from both the National Institutes of Health and the National Science Foundation over the past 28 years. Professor Duncan is a Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE), of the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE) and of the Medical Image Computing and Computer Assisted Intervention (MICCAI) Society. He currently serves as co-Editor-in-Chief of Medical Image Analysis and as an Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Medical Imaging. In 2012, he was elected to the Council of Distinguished Investigators, Academy of Radiology Research. In 2014, he was elected to the Connecticut Academy of Science and Engineering.
