Research Interests

Computer vision, 3D reconstruction, object detection, probabilistic modeling, Bayesian priors and inference


I am a Research Associate on the TrimBot project – we aim to design a gardening robot that uses cameras to navigate to bushes or hedges and trim them to the desired shape. I contribute to 3D visual data processing and mapping.

Prior to this I completed a PhD within the Center for Machine Perception at Czech Technical University in Prague. My postgraduate research focused on detection of regular structures and symmetric objects in images, for which we have constructed probabilistic models and employed both stochastic inference methods and machine learning.

I graduated from the Czech Technical University in Biomedical Engineering with my master thesis dealing with image-based reconstruction of 3D surface. We proposed a method based on depth map fusion and later complemented it with an accurate refinement method.
