Short bio

Carla Maria Modena received her degree in Mathematics from the University of Trento in 1985. In 1986, she worked as research assistant (Wissenschaftliche Mitarbeiterin) in Ökonometrie at the Institut für Volkswirtschaftslehre, Universität Regensburg, Germany.
She joined ITC-irst, now FBK (Trento - Italy) in 1987, where she works with the Technologies of Vision (TeV) research unit.

She is interested in text detection and extraction for document image understanding (DIU and OCR) and for scene understanding (TIS). She works mainly on computer vision with applicative tasks (for example, traffic scene analyis, people re-identification). To prevent the risk of reinventing the wheel, she pays a close attention to the state-of-the art before starting each task in which she is involved in, using her ability to fully exploit the net resources and to analyse trends in upcoming conferences.

She is a member of IAPR-CVPL.
