Birgit studied Computer Science in the Natural Sciences at the Technical Faculty    of the University of Bielefeld   , Germany. She received the diploma in computer science (Dipl.-Inform.) from that university in 2001, and a PhD degree in computer science (Dr. rer. nat.) from the Martin-Luther-University Halle-Wittenberg, Germany, in 2005.

From April 2001 until September 2002 she was a member of the research group for Applied Computer Science    at the University of Bielefeld (head: Prof. Dr. Gerhard Sagerer) where she worked in the joint research project ''Situated Artificial Communicators'' (Sonderforschungsbereich 360 ''Situierte Künstliche Kommunikatoren'') on various aspects of active vision and dynamic perception. Since October 2002 she was working with the Pattern Recognition and Bioinformatics Group at the Martin-Luther-University Halle-Wittenberg led by Prof. Dr. Stefan Posch. From April 2006 until April 2007 Birgit spent a one-year postdoctoral research period at the Universidad de Girona    in Nothern Spain / Catalunya, financed by a DAAD    Postdoctoral Fellowship. During that time she joined the Underwater Vision Lab    of the Computer Vision and Robotics Group (VICOROB   ) as a Postdoc. After the Postdoc period in Spain she returned to Halle where she is now working as a researcher in the Pattern Recognition and Bioinformatics Group. Her main research is in the area of image analysis and computer vision with a strong focus on the analysis of biological and biomedical image data.
