  • Paul Scheunders graduated in physics at the University of Antwerp in 1986.
  • He obtained a PhD in statistical physics at the same university in 1990.
  • From 1989 to 1990, he worked in the Physics Department at the University of Louvain.
  • From 1990 to 1992, he worked in the Nuclear Medicine division of the University Hospital of Louvain.
  • In 1992 he and Prof. Dirk Van Dyck started the Vision Lab at the University of Antwerp,
  • where he is currently a Professor.


My general research interest is in the development of techniques for image processing and pattern recognition with a strong emphasis on model-based and statistical techniques. My main application area is remote sensing in general and multispectral and hyperspectral image processing and analysis in particular.
Some specific research topics are:

  • Multi-and hyperspectral image denoising and restoration
  • Multi-and hyperspectral image fusion
  • Lineair and non-linear spectral unmixing
  • Multisource remote sensing image classification
  • Contextual-based hyperspectral image classification
  • Semi-supervised and active learning for remote sensing
  • Applications in vegetation and habitat monitoring
