Member Profile

This is "The Multimedia Signal Processing and Security Lab", short WaveLab, website. We are a research group at the Computer Sciences Department of the University of Salzburg headed by Andreas Uhl. The short name "WaveLab" already indicates that wavelets are among our favorite tools - we have 15 years of experience in this area. Our research is focused on Multimedia Security including Watermarking, Image and Video Compression, Medical Image Classification, and Biometrics.

About Me:
I am a PhD student in the Multimedia Signal Processing and Security Lab working on Biometrics with a focus on iris recognition in surveillance scenarios. Please, check my website peterwild.net for further information.

 
 

Research Interests:

  • Computer vision: object detection, segmentation, robotic vision systems;
  • Pattern recognition: biometrics (iris, face, fingerprint, footprint, palmprint), multibiometric fusion;
  • Media security: image encryption, biometric template protection.
