Ionuţ Mironică

Research Scientist at Adobe


Biography: I am currently a Research Scientist at Adobe. Prior to joining Adobe, I spent nine memorable years as PhD, Post-Doctoral Researcher and Assistant Professor at University Politechnica Of Bucharest, in the Image Processing and Analysis Laboratory. I obtained my PhD in 2013 under the supervision of Prof. Radu Dogaru. My research interests includes content based multimedia retrieval, computer vision and machine learning.

Internships: I am always happy to host and mentor PhD and motivated MSc students at Adobe, Bucharest. If you would like to work with me, please send me an email describing your past experience and current research interests. Make sure to include your CV and a paragraph about specific topics you would like to explore during your internship. In the past I have had the pleasure to collaborate with the following interns: Andrei Zugravu, Andreea Birhala and Himanshu Ranjan.
