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 an Assistant Professor at the University of Salzburg in the Department of Computer Sciences. I obtained my PhD and MSc in 2010 and 2007, respectively. My PhD research focussed on statistical models of wavelet filter responses (of natural and textured images) with applications in retrieval, watermarking or computer-aided diagnosis. From 2011 to 2013, I spent two years with Kitware Inc., NC, USA, where I worked on Open-Source projects such as TubeTK as well as a variety of research topics in the areas of medical imaging and computer vision (mostly in a recognition context).
