About the Author

Born 1950; Scientific photographer 1975; PhD Geology, Texas A&M University, 1983; Habilitation, Basel University, 1993; Prof. Geosciences, Basel University, 2002.
Prof. Renée Heilbronner has many years of experience in the field of image analysis. She has developed many software packages herself, including a method for texture determination by light optical methods and general orientation imaging. She is involved in the development of an internationally well-known free-ware image analysis program (Image SXM, former NIH Image). She a member of a growing group of international texture analysis experts, who are setting up workshops and are building a network for texture research involving mathematicians, material scientists, and geologists.
She is an experienced teacher of image analysis courses at different levels, ranging from general introductory courses to specialized texture workshops. She has taught these courses inmany different universities all over the world.
