Dr. Khorram is a Professor of Remote Sensing and Image processing. He received a MS. in Engineering and another MS in Ecology from the University of California (UC) at Davis. He received a Ph.D. under a joint program from the University of California at Berkeley and Davis with emphasis on Remote Sensing and Image processing.
From 1976 to 1980, he served as the Principal Scientist at the Space Sciences Laboratory at the University of California in Berkeley. In 1980, he joined the faculty in North Carolina State University (NCSU) in Forestry and Environmental Resources and in Electrical and Computer Engineering departments. He has served as the Principal Investigator for well over 60 major research projects. His research projects have focused on remote sensing, image processing, and geospatial information technology.
In 1982, he established the Computer Graphics Center (CGC) at NCSU as a university-wide officially recognized center involved in research and training in spatial information technology and special purpose computing. In 1997, he changed the name of CGC to the Center for Earth Observation (CEO) with the same mission. He has served as the Founding Director of CGC and CEO since its inception until 2011. Him and his colleagues are in the process of changing the name from CEO to the Center for Geospatial Sciences.
In 1986 and 87, he served as a NASA-ASEE Fellow at NASA Ames Research Center and as a summer faculty at Stanford University, California.
Since 1988, he has concurrently served as a faculty member at the International Space University (ISU). In 1995 and 96, he served as the first Dean and Vice President for Academic Programs at ISU in Strasbourg, France. Subsequent to his position as the Dean, Dr. Khorram served as the Principal Advisor to the President in 96. Afterwards, he has served as the Chair of the Academic Council and the Chair of the ISU’s 23 Affiliates Campuses Network worldwide.
He currently serves as a member of the University’s Board of Trustees.
He holds patents (pending final approval) in Data Fusion techniques as applied to imagery from various payloads and platforms. He has served as the Major Professor for over 30 Ph.D. and MS students. He is the author of over 200 publications in peer-reviewed journals, conference proceedings, and major technical reports. He is a member of several professional and scientific societies. He has taught undergraduate and graduate courses as well as short-courses and workshops in remote sensing, photogammetry, and digital image processing.
He has delivered Keynote speeches in the International Symposium on Computers and Communications in 2008 in Morocco and 2010 in Italy.
