SKYPE NAME

SHORT BIO

Tiziana D’Orazio received the Laurea degree magna cum laude in 1988 in Computer Science from the University of Bari. She held grants from the Italian National Research Council (CNR) of Bari in 1989-93 for research activities in Robotics and Image Processing. During 1994-1997 she was a fellow researcher of the Italian National Research Council (CNR). In 1997 she held a position as Researcher at the Institute of Intelligent Systems for Automation (ISSIA) of the Italian National Research Council.

She participated to many CNR, and MIUR projects and was the scientific coordinator of some research projects and collaborations between the ISSIA Institute and industrial companies.

Tiziana D’Orazio is responsible of many projects with industrial partners and private companies in pattern recognition, computer vision, and visual surveillance.

Tiziana D’Orazio is author of more than 100 papers in national and international journals, and conference proceedings. She currently serves as reviewer for many international journals in computer vision (e.g. IEEE Trans. on CSVT, IEEE Trans. on SMC, IEEE Trans. on NN, IEEE Trans. On IM, Pattern Recognition Journal, Pattern Recognition Letters, Computer Vision and Image Understanding, Image and Vision Computing, Intelligent Transportation Journal and so on.).

She is co-author of three international patents on visual systems for event detection in sport contexts.

Research Interests

Her current research interests include pattern recognition, video analysis and computer vision for video surveillance, domotics, Intelligent Transportation Systems, and Quality Control. Past activity is concerned with visual algorithms for autonomous navigation, artificial intelligence paradigm for elementary behaviour learning, feature extraction for pattern recognition. Video surveillance activity is devoted to indoor and outdoor application for people and posture tracking and behaviour understanding.
