Dr. Laura Leal-Taixé
Laura Leal-Taixé left the Institut für Informationsverabeitung.
Publications and research activities from the time after the departure are not listed here.

Laura Leal-Taixé was born in Barcelona in 1984. She studied Telecommunications Engineering at the Technical University of Catalonia (UPC).

She went to Boston, USA in 2007 to do her Masters Thesis at Northeastern University with a fellowship from the Vodafone foundation. She worked with Prof. Dana Brooks on computer vision and image processing for medical images, presenting the thesis “Automatic Segmentation of multi-stain histology images of arteries”.

Since 2009, she is working towards her PhD degree at the Institut für Informationsverarbeitung (TNT) of the Leibniz University of Hannover, Germany. Her research interests include multiple target tracking and action recognition and classification. She is working on the HoloVision and Multiple people tracking projects.
