Stephen Marshall received a first-class honours degree in electrical and electronic engineering from the University of Nottingham in 1979 and the Ph.D. degree in image processing from University of Strathclyde in 1989. In between, he worked at Plessey Office Systems, Nottingham, University of Paisley, and the University of Rhode Island, USA. In recent years, his research activities have been focused on the area of nonlinear image processing. He has pioneered new design techniques for morphological filters based on a class of iterative search techniques known as genetic algorithms. The resulting filters have been applied as four-dimensional operators to successfully restore old film archive material. The work is now the subject of a Scottish Enterprise “Proof of Concept Program,” to commercialise these techniques. He has published over 100 conference and journal papers on these topics including IEE, IEEE, SPIE, SIAM, ICASSP, VIE, and EUSIPCO. He is an Executive Team Member of the IEE Professional Network on Visual Information Engineering (VIE), a former Director and Chairman of the Scottish Chapter, the British Machine Vision Association, and a Founding Member of the Nonlinear Signal and Image Processing (NSIP) Board.
