Biography

Krista Ehinger is a Senior Lecturer in the School of Computing and Information Systems at the University of Melbourne. She received her Ph.D. in the Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2013. She was a postdoc at Harvard Medical School from 2013-2016 and a postdoc at York University from 2016-2019. Her work focusses on the intersection of human and computer vision for tasks such as scene recognition, visual search and depth perception in natural scenes.
