Robert Loce is a Research Fellow and Technical Manager in the Xerox Research Center Webster. He joined Xerox in 1981 with an Associate degree in Optical Engineering Technology from Monroe Community College. While working in optical and imaging technology and research departments at Xerox, he received a BS in Photographic Science (RIT 1985), an MS in Optical Engineering (UR 1987), a PhD in Imaging Science (RIT 1993), and passed the US Patent Bar (2002). A significant portion of his earlier career was devoted to development of image processing methods for color electronic printing. His current research activities involve leading an organization and projects into new computer vision and video technologies that are relevant to transportation, healthcare,retail, and surveillance. He has publications and many patents in the areas of digital image processing, image enhancement, imaging systems, optics and halftoning. He is a Fellow of SPIE and a Senior Member of IEEE. His publications include a book on enhancement and restoration of digital documents, and book chapters on digital halftoning and digital document processing. He is currently an associate editor for Journal of Electronic Imaging, and has been an associate editor for Real-Time Imaging, and IEEE Transactions on Image Processing.
