SFU computing science professor emeritus receives Canadian Lifetime Achievement Award
SFU computing science professor emeritus Stella Atkins recently received the CS-Can|Info-Can Lifetime Achievement Award. This prestigious award recognizes her outstanding and sustained contributions in research, teaching and service over her career as a computer scientist.
Atkins joined SFU's School of Computing Science as an assistant professor in 1985 and worked in the School of Computing Science for 25 years before retiring in 2010. After being introduced to medical imaging at SFU, Atkins quickly became interested in the application of this research, forming an interdisciplinary group of computer scientists, engineers and medical professionals to study problems in medical image display and analysis.
