Short CV

Roxane Licandro graduated the master study of medical informatics at TU Wien with distinction in January 2016. She graduated her PhD studies in March 2021 at TU Wien in cooperation with CIR and worked as study assistant at Pattern Recognition and Image Processing (PRIP) Group,  and as teaching assistant at the  Institute of Computer Graphics and Algorithms and as university assistant at the Computer Vision Lab at TU Wien. She is currently working as PostDoc research associate at CIR in various projects with focus on spatio temporal modelling and machine learning.
