Vildana Sulic

Vildana Sulić Kenk received her B.Sc. degree from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering of the University of Ljubljana, Slovenia in 2006, in the field of biomedical engineering. She was a junior researcher at the Machine Vision Laboratory at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering from 2007 to 2011. She received her Ph.D. degree from the same faculty in 2011. The main focus of her dissertation is knowledge distribution in a distributed sensor network, especially in the visual-sensor network, for a task of object matching and recognition. Results of her Ph.D. research can be directly applied in the field of distributed surveillance. Currently, she is a research assistant with the Machine Vision Laboratory, with her interests in computer vision, image processing, human-motion analysis, distributed camera networks and visual-sensor networks. She has authored and coauthored peer-reviewed scientific and conference papers addressing different issues related to biometry, surveillance, visual-sensor networks, image processing, pattern recognition and computer vision.
