Viorela Ila was a research fellow with the Centre at ANU. Her research interests span from low-level image processing, parallel architectures, robot vision to advanced techniques for simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) and 3D reconstruction based on cutting-edge computational tools such as graphical models, modern optimization methods and information theory.
Viorela received a Bachelor of Engineering in Industrial Engineering and Automation from the Technical University of Cluj-Napoca, Romania, in 2000 and a PhD in Information Technologies from the University of Girona, Spain, in 2005. After she completed her PhD, she joined the Robotics group at the Institut de Robótica i Informàtica Industrial, Barcelona, Spain where she led two Spanish national projects and participated in the URUS EU FP7 project. In 2009 she received a MICINN/FULBRIGHT post-doctoral fellowship which allowed her to join the group of Professor Frank Dellaert at College of Computing, Georgia Tech, Atlanta US. In 2010, she joined LAAS-CNRS, Toulouse, France to work in the ROSACE project founded by RTRA-STAE. Between 2012 and 2014 she was with Brno University of Technology in Czech Republic working in three EU and one national projects.
Viorela left the Centre in December 2018. She has taken up the position of Senior Lecturer with the Sydney Institute for Robotics and Intelligent Systems (SIRIS).
