Horst Possegger

Currently, I am a Computer Science PhD student at the Institute for Computer Graphics and Vision at Graz University of Technology, Austria. I received the BSc and MSc degrees in Software Development and Business Management from Graz University of Technology in 2011 and 2013, respectively.

My research interests include (multiple) object tracking and detection, human behavior analysis, and video analysis in general.
