Rudolf Haraksim

Rudolf Haraksim is an Early Stage Researcher funded by the International FP7 Marie Curie Initial Training Network 'Bayesian Biometrics for Forensics (BBfor2)'.

His research focuses on the calculation of likelihood ratios in different forensic modalities from scores produced by automated forensic systems. He started off with AFIS at the NFI fingerprint group and is looking to find / establish tools for validation of this system. The main ambition is to produce a framework that could be easily extended (extrapolated) into other forensic modalities.
