About Me

I am often asked why I have two i's in my name. Ironically, i's is spelled in the same way as "two eyes":) I was born in Ukraine, and this is the way my name (which essentially should be Victoria) was translated from cyrillic to latin. This question always makes me smile :)
I got my Masters degree in Applied Mathematics at Kiev National University, Ukraine, and now I am doing my PhD in Computer Vision at IST Austria in Vienna, Austria. I am working with Christoph Lampert at Computer Vision and Machine Learning Group, and I closely collaborate with Novi Quadrianto at the SMiLe CLiNiC, University of Sussex.
I am particularly interested in designing a computer vision system that can learn new objects and object categories just as humans do. Currently I am actively involved in learning efficient and discriminative image representations. My data consist of images and videos of a variety of different objects, e.g. existing available databases, or data from the Web. The topic of my thesis is Learning with attributes for object recognition: parametric and non-parametric views.
