Alina Kuznetsova graduated with honors in 2010 from Lomonosov Moscow State University. She spent one year as a research student in Fraunhofer ITWM in the department of Image Processing. Since autumn 2011 she has been working towards her PhD degree at the Institute for Information processing at the Leibniz University Hanover.

Research Interests


  • From June to September 2015 I am doing a research internship at Microsoft Research Cambridge
  • The ToF calibration toolbox from the ECCV 2014 workshop paper is now available at GitHub; the sample data can be downloaded here.
  • From August to December 2014 I am visiting the Disney Research Lab in Pittsburgh, USA
