Djamila Aouada was born in Blida, Algeria, on November 10, 1982. She is Research Scientist at the Interdisciplinary Centre for Security, Reliability, and Trust (SnT), at the University of Luxembourg, and the head of the Computer Vision team in the SIGCOM group. She received the State Engineering degree (Ingéniorat d’État) in electronics in June 2005, from the École Nationale Polytechnique (ENP), Algiers, Algeria, and the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering in May 2009 from North Carolina State University (NCSU), Raleigh, NC, USA. Dr. Aouada has been leading the computer vision activities at the SnT since 2009. She attracted several national (CORE FNR FAVE, 3D-Act, CORE FNR PPP ID-form, Smart Schoul 2025), industrial (IEE, Cetrel, Artec3D) and European projects (H2020 STARR), for which she is either the PI or the Vice-PI. She has co-supervised 5 PhD theses and is currently the main supervisor of 5 PhD Candidates. She has worked as a consultant for multiple renowned laboratories (Los Alamos National Laboratory, Alcatel Lucent Bell Labs., and Mitsubishi Electric Research Labs.). Her research interests span the areas of signal and image processing, computer vision, pattern recognition and data modelling. Dr. Aouada is Senior Member of the IEEE, member of the IEEE Signal Processing Society, IEEE  WIE, INSTICC and the Eta Kappa Nu honor society (HKN). She has served as the Chair of the IEEE Benelux Women in Engineering Affinity Group from 2014 to 2016. She regularly reviews for journals and conferences, including CVPR, IEEE TIP, CVIU, and SigPro. She is the co-author of four IEEE best paper awards.

My research interests span the areas of signal and image processing, computer vision, and pattern recognition. I have a specific interest for mathematical data modeling. My emphasis is on solving practical engineering problems while borrowing theoretical tools (Manifold Theory, Differential Geometry, Measure Theory).
