Dr Lena Halounová received her Ing. (civil engineer) at the Faculty of Civil Engineering, Czech Technical University Prague, branch Water Constructions and Water Management in 1980 and PhD. (Three-dimensional nonstationary flow in open channels) at the same faculty in 1989. She has been employed in the Remote Sensing Laboratory, Fac. of CE, CTU in Prague since 1985.

She defended her habilitation on the topic of automated classification of black and white aerial photographs and radar data at CTU in Prague in 2005.
