Keywords: Fingerprint recognition Face detection and recognition Biometric systems Bioinformatics Pattern recognition

Actual reserch themes:

  • Byometric systems: Study of automated methods of verifying or recognizing the identity of a living person on the basis of some physiological characteristics, like a fingerprint, the face, an iris pattern or the signature.
  • Bioinformatics: Bioinformatics is the application of information technology to the field of molocular biology; it entails the creation and advancement of algorithms, computational and statistical techniques, and theory to solve formal and practical problems arising from the management and analysis of biological data.

Past research themes:

  • Image generation:  Design of an application to computer image generation by Petri Nets. The basic idea is to translate the evolution of a Petri Net into a graphic output. The resulting images exhibit a certain analogy with fractals.
  • Digital image watermarking: A digital watermark is an identification code, permanently embedded into digital data, carrying information pertaining to copyright protection and data authentication
  • Image Database Systems: An image database (IDB) is a system in which a large amount of image data and their related information are integratedly stored and managed. Major objectives of an IDB are efficient storage, powerful retrieval capability, flexible data manipulation, efficient indexing.
