Gabriella Sanniti di Baja è nata il 29/01/1950 ed ha svolto attività di ricerca in “Pattern Recognition & Computer Vision” presso l’Istituto di Cibernetica E. Caianiello” del CNR dall’autunno 1972, quando ha iniziato la preparazione della tesi di laurea, fino allo 01/02/2015, data in cui ha cessato il servizio quale Dirigente di Ricerca per raggiunti limiti d’età.

Ha conseguito la laurea in Fisica con 110 e lode su 110 presso l’Università Federico II di Napoli nel 1973 ed ha ricevuto il PhD Honoris Causa dall’Università di Uppsala, Uppsala, Svezia, nel 2002.
E’ stata Presidente dell’International Association for Pattern Recognition (IAPR) nel biennio 2000-2002, membro dello IAPR Executive Committee dal 1994 al 2004, e chairperson/member di numerosi IAPR Standing Committees.

E’ stata Presidente del Gruppo Italiano di Ricercatori in Pattern Recognition (GIRPR) nel quadriennio 2008-2012. Dal 2000 è Editor-in-Chief di Pattern Recognition Letters. Dal 2000 è IAPR Fellow. Dal 2011 è “Foreign Member” della Royal Society of Sciences at Uppsala, Uppsala, Svezia.

Ha organizzato numerosi convegni internazionali (ICIAP, IWVF, ICPR, DGCI, BVAI, AVI, IEB) ed è stata Program Committee Member di numerosi convegni internazionali. Nel 2016 sarà Co- General Chair di ICPR 2016, la conferenza biennale di unta nella comunità IAPR.

Ha svolto attività di referee per le maggiori riviste nel settore di “Pattern Recognition & Computer Vision”.

L’attività di ricerca svolta da G. Sanniti di Baja nel periodo 2009-2014 ha riguardato le aree del settore “Pattern Recognition & Computer Vision” generalmente chiamate “visione artificiale a basso e a medio livello” e piu’ specificatamente: geometria e topologia digitali, trasformata distanza e sue applicazioni, sistemi di rappresentazione, multirisoluzione, decomposizione e
descrizione di immagini 2D e 3D, segmentazione, elaborazione di immagini a colori, biometria.
