Montse Pardàs received the MS degree in telecommunications and the Ph. D. degree from the Polytechnic University of Catalonia, Barcelona, Spain, in July 1991 and January 1995, respectively. From September 1994 she has been teaching under-graduate and graduate courses in the area of communication systems, digital image processing and computer vision in this University, where she is currently Professor. From January 1999 to December 1999 she was a research visitor at Bell Labs, Lucent Technologies, in New Jersey, and from July 2019 to June 2020 at Toshiba’s Cambridge Research Lab (Computer Vision group). Her main research interests include image and video analysis using mathematical morphology and deep learning, with a special emphasis on segmentation and object tracking applications. 

She has served as associate editor of journals such as EURASIP Journal on Advances in Signal Processing and ISRN Machine Vision, as technical co-chair for the international conference EUSIPCO 2011 and as regular reviewer for image processing and computer vision conferences.
