Data Science - KVS

Key researcher for computational intelligence and computer vision at the Software Competence Center Hagenberg, Austria (SCCH) and habilitated for Mathematics at Johannes Kepler University Linz. SCCH is a research and technology organization funded within the Austrian COMET program for Competence Centers of Excellent Technologies.

Main research interests are devoted to mathematical aspects of pattern recognition and signal processing with focus on non-standard similarity measures, as well as probability-based, kernel- and rule-based methods.

Scope of scientific work encompasses

  • Program Committee Member and Special Session Organizer at EBCCSP 2015, 2016, 2017 (Int. Conf. on Event-Based Control, Communication and Signal Processing)
  • Program Chair of the Austrian Association for Pattern Recognition 2016, OAGM/AAPR.
  • Coordination of the Austrian IKTdZ project “Hyperion3D” on 3D film production (2013-2015).
  • Initiation and coordination of a fundamental research project funded by the Austrian Science Fund on Hermann Weyl’s discrepancy measure as image similarity (FWF P21496, 2010-2013).
  • Initiation and coordination of the European eraSME project “texQuality3D“on “High-performance quality inspection of industrial fabrics by 3D profile analysis” (June 2010 – June 2012).
  • Publications in top ranked journals, e.g., IEEE-TSP (Trans. on  Signal Processing),  IEEE-TPAMI (Trans. on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence), JLMR (Journal for Machine Learning Research), DCG (Discrete & Computational Geometry), EJC (Electronic Journal of Combinatorics)
