Melinda Katona, PhD

Computer Science Specialist

Personal Statement

I have always been interested in image processing in general, and how it applies to the biomedical field in special. The later permits me to apply the knowledge I acquired to solve real-life problems. Joining CTL allowed me to work on tasks that require such creative thinking combined with theoretical knowledge. The company's science-oriented philosophy stimulates me to work enthusiastically.
