Codruta Orniana Ancuti
Senior Researcher/Lecturer




I completed my Ph.D. at Hasselt University (Belgium) in 2011. Starting with 2013 I am a Lecturer at UPT. My main interest of research is image understanding and visual perception. The goal of perceptually validated approaches is to enable computers to acquire images and extract important features comparable with the human visual system and beyond. I am currently a research fellow at University of Girona (ViCOROB group), where I pursue my research on underwater image enhancement.
