Antonella Di Lillo received her PhD in computer science from Brandeis University in 2008, where she worked on a biologically inspired computational model for texture segmentation and classification. She was then a faculty member at Brandeis for 15 years, teaching a variety of undergraduate and graduate core computer science courses. She has been active for many years in working with national programs to facilitate the involvement of women in Computer Science, and in conducting outreach to local secondary schools to improve early exposure in the field. Her research specialization is in computer vision and includes current work investigating the use of deep learning in image and video understanding, with applications to data compression and image processing.
