Personal profile


I am a lecturer (assistant professor) in the School of Informatics at the University of Edinburgh and leading the Visual Computing Group (VICO). My research focuses on computer vision and machine learning with a focus on weakly/unsupervised learning, multi-task/domain/modality learning and 3D understanding. Before Edinburgh, I have spent three wonderful years in the great Visual Geometry Group (VGG) at the University of Oxford as a postdoc, working with Andrea Vedaldi. I completed my PhD in VISICS group in KU Leuven. I was lucky to work with Luc Van Gool and Tinne Tuytelaars. My PhD topic was about image classification with latent parameters with a focus on weakly supervised object detection and action recognition.
