Anat Levin is a professor in the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at the Weizmann Institute of Science. She received her PhD in Computer Science from The Hebrew University of Jerusalem in 2006, and was a postdoctoral researcher at MIT before joining the Weizmann Institute in 2009.

Prof. Levin's research interests are in the areas of Computer Vision, Computer Graphics and Image Processing and Optics. In particular she works on computational photography as well as on low- and mid-level vision. She has made many innovative and ground-breaking contributions to the emerging field of computational photography, which arises from the understanding that incorporating computation into the design of imaging technologies leads to the development of novel imaging capabilities that overcome the inherent limits of traditional cameras. She seeks new practical solutions to long-standing real-world challenges, whilst attempting to study the mathematical foundations of such solutions. Much of her work is based on exploiting the statistics of natural scenes, to retrieve the lost information due to poor image processing.

Levin has been awarded multiple awards and grants, including the M.L. Levinson Prize (2015), the PAMI Young Researcher Award (2013) and the Krill Prize (2013).
