Short Introduction

Manisha Luthra joined the Master's course in Computer Science at TU Darmstadt in 2013. Besides the master's degree, she worked as a junior research assistant in KOM. During this time she focused on developing distributed image processing algorithms for objective assessment of quality of experience. In 2016 she completed her Master degree in Computer Science with a specialization in Distributed Software Systems. Afterwards, she started working as a Research Scientist at the Multimedia Communications Lab with the research project MAKI.
