Matthew A Kupinski, PhD


Matthew A. Kupinski is a Professor with appointments in the College of Optical Sciences, the Department of Medical Imaging, and the Program in Applied Mathematics. He received a BS degree in physics from Trinity University in 1995, and received his PhD in 2000 from the University of Chicago. He is the recipient of the 2007 Mark Tetalman Award and the 2012 recipient of the Outstanding Mentor Award. He has over 50 peer-reviewed publications, numerous book chapters, and has edited a book. He has worked in diverse areas of imaging including x-ray, gamma-ray, diffuse optical, magnetic resonance, and neutron imaging.

Cancer Focus

Dr. Kupinski’s cancer focus has been on designing imaging systems that will enable better detection of cancerous lesions in CT imaging, breast imaging, nuclear medicine, and diffuse optical imaging. He has been involved in the development of image-quality metrics that directly assess or correlate with how well human observers can see and detect abnormalities in images.
