Katja Bühler

Brief Bio
Katja Bühler is Scientific Director of the VRVis Research Center in Vienna, Austria. She completed her studies in Mathematics at KIT, Karlsruhe, Germany and holds a PhD in Computer Science from TU Wien, Austria. In 2003 she became head of the Biomedical Image Informatics Group at VRVis. She is member of the management board of Austrian Bioimaging and associate editor of Computers and Graphics, the Visual Computer and Frontiers in Bioinformatics. Katja’s scientific roots are in reliable computing, numerics and geometry processing. Today's focus of her research is on the development of highly efficient methods to provide access to information encoded in biomedical images with the aim to accelerate image-based decision making. For this purpose, she is fusing expertise in image processing, machine and deep learning, high performance computing, data mining, visualization and human computer interaction to novel visual computing solutions for medicine and life science. Research results of her group received numerous scientific awards and resulted in several patents. The software emerged from the groups research is helping radiologists, radiotherapists and surgeons to cope with multi-modal images and diagnostic tasks in their daily clinical routine. The e-science platform Brain* addresses the urgent need to manage and exploit image intense data collections and accelerates multi-omics and image-based research of neuroscientists. ... More >>
