Alicja graduated with distinction from Gdansk University of Technology, receiving Bachelor’s and Master’s Degree in Biomedical Engineering – Informatics in Medicine. Her Master Thesis was conducted in cooperation with Norwegian University of Science and Technology in the area of signal and image processing, where she developed a platform for contactless monitoring of elderly people. This work has been frequently awarded in different contests, e.g. best diploma in the area of bioinformatics. As a Ph.D. candidate at Gdansk University of Technology, she is conducting the research in image processing using machine learning algorithms, frequently publishing her work in different journals and IEEE conferences and receiving awards for them, e.g. best paper award and best young professional paper award. Recently, she has been conducting a joint research in the field of neural networks with University of Texas, San Antonio. She has 8 years professional experience in computer vision gained while developing software for processing laryngological images or tracking people in congested areas. For the past 3 years, she was working on deep learning algorithms for servers monitoring, autonomous cars, smart home, and healthcare at Intel Corporation.
