Sven Klomp studied electrical engineering with a focus on communications at Leibniz UniversitÃ¤t Hannover and received a mention for the Dipl.-Ing. degree in 2004. Since then he has been working toward a PhD degree at the Institut fÃ¼r Informationsverarbeitung of Leibniz UniversitÃ¤t Hannover. His research interests are image processing and video coding. He was involved in the DISCOVER project where the major research topic was interpolation of the side information. This mainly implies motion estimation and compensation. With these experience, he started working in the field of decoder-side motion estimation (DSME).
