Irene Ballester is a PhD student and research assistant at the Computer Vision Lab at TU Wien. She is a Marie Curie ITN fellow for the visuAAL project working on AI for dementia care.

She holds a BSc degree in Industrial Technology Engineering (2017) and an MSc degree in Industrial Engineering (2020), both from the University of Zaragoza, Spain. Before joining CVL, Irene worked as a research trainee in the Department of Perception and Cognition at the Institute of Robotics and Mechatronics at the German Aerospace Center (DLR) in Munich, where she completed her master’s thesis on dynamic SLAM.

Her current research focuses on Active Assisted Living (AAL) and computer vision.
