Christoph Schnörr received his degrees from the Technical University of Karlsruhe (today: Karlsruhe Institute of Technology) and the University of Hamburg, respectively. He worked as a researcher at the Fraunhofer Institut of Information and Data Processing in Karlsruhe before moving to the University of Hamburg. In 1998, he became full professor at the University of Mannheim, where he set up and directed the Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition Group. He moved to the Heidelberg University in 2008 where he is heading the Image and Pattern Analysis Group at the Institute of Applied Mathematics, which also is member of the Interdisciplinary Center for Scientific Computing. Christoph Schnörr has been coordinating 2010-2018 a research training group focusing on probabilistic graphical models and its applications to image analysis, funded by the German Science Foundation. He is one of 4 directors of the Heidelberg Collaboratory for Image Processing that implements and explores novel ways of combining basic strategic research in academia and research labs in industry, as part of the excellence initiative of the Heidelberg University. He served 2005-2014 as co-editor in chief of the International Journal of Computer Vision and currently as associate editor for the Journal of Mathematical Imaging and Vision and the SIAM Journal of Imaging Science. His research interests include mathematical models of image analysis and numerical optimisation.
