Porträt Karin SchnassKarin Schnass
Beloved leader of the start project.

Has an MSc in math from the University of Vienna and a PhD in computer, communication and information sciences from EPFL. Despite these fancy degrees she neither believes in the axiom of choice nor can she fix computers.

Flavio TeixeiraFlavio Teixeira
Postdoc and computer genius.

Has MSc/PhD degrees in electrical engineering from the University of Brasilia and the University of Victoria. Joined the project in April 2016 to work on compressed dictionary learning and to remind Karin to water the plant. He actually knows how to program and volunteered to turn all our matlab hacks into proper C or Python toolboxes!



Porträt Marie PaliMarie Christine Pali
PhD student, project baby, chocolate pusher.

Has an MSc in math from the University of Innsbruck. Joined the project in November 2016 for an internship and 4 months later decided to go for the PhD with us. She is an absolute expert for Navier Stokes equations, which will come in handy at some point. Until then she is working on extending recovery results for dictionary learning to more complicated coefficient models and other algorithms.

Porträt Michael SandbichlerMichael Sandbichler
Adopted PhD student and math genius.

Has MSc degrees in math and physics and soon also a PhD degree in math from the University of Innsbruck. Joined the project right from the beginning until March'18 to work on analysis operator learning. Used to amaze with total lack of any programming style and the ability to understand and translate Karin's half sentences. While awaiting his PhD defense, he is working as Vision Software Engineer (irony) at

Besi Austria GmbH.


Porträt Andreas KoflerAndreas Kofler
Our man in Berlin.

Has an MSc in math from the University of Innsbruck and joined the project for a 4-month PhD-trial in October 2015. Gave Michi and Karin the holy blackbox for using the computing cluster (all parts since confirmed necessary by Flavio and several calls from cluster maintenance), but then decided to get a real job. Once the real job turned surreal he went to Berlin, where he is now doing a PhD on deep learning for CT/MRT imaging.
