Two ITU researchers have been awarded 5.7 million DKK from IRFD
Associate Professor Veronika Cheplygina and Assistant Professor Therese Graversen in Computer Science at the IT-University have each received 2.8 million DKK for their research projects.
Associate Professor Veronika Cheplygina and Assistant Professor Therese Graversen have each been awarded 2.8 million DKK from the Independent Research Fund Denmark’s Inge Lehmann-programme which aims to foster new talent and to promote gender equality in the Danish research environments.
Using machine learning technology, Veronika Cheplygina will be using her funding from IRFD to develop better methods for medical imaging analysis by focusing on the role of meta data.
Therese Graversen aims to improve the accuracy of DNA analysis to ensure that complicated DNA evidence can be used as admissible evidence. She has previously acted as expert witness in criminal court cases relying on her expertise in DNA analysis.
Along with 37 other recipients, the two ITU-researchers have collectively received project funding to the tune of 110 million DKK via the IRFD’s Inge Lehmann-programme.
The Inge Lehmann-programme is part of the political agreement about the Research Reserve in 2021. Theis Duelund Jensen, Press Officer, Tel: +45 2555 0447, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
