I am Co-Founder and CTO of 3DUniversum, technology spin-off of UvA providing state-of-the art 2D\3D computer vision solutions. I received my Ph.D. degree at Computer Vision Group, Informatics Institute, UvA. During my Ph.D. I have numerous publications in top-tier Computer Vision Journals and Conferences. I am also founder of two other startups (ScanM and 3DHealthScan). I passionately combine research and practice of computer vision technologies.

I am also a postdoctoral researcher and a Research & Teaching Assisstant at Computer Vision Group Amsterdam, Informatics Institute, University of Amsterdam.

My research interests are Artificial Intelligence and 3D Computer Vision. Currently, I am working on several research topics such that SLAM, re-localization, 3D reconstruction, 3D object detection\segmentation, 3D facial analysis, deep fake creation\detection and VR/AR..

  • oct'18 | In 3DUniversum, we live up to our mission to develop solutions that positively serve humanity. Our artificial intelligence solutions make impact to daily life of consumers as well as overal society (healthcare monitoring, fake news detection, etc). We find it a privilege to have this opportunity thus it is also our responsibility to give back to community knowledge and experience where we can. As a small contribution to this, last week we participated in #hackathonforgood (Hackathon for Peace, Justice and Security) as mentors to technically support groups developing innovative open-source solutions to challenging problems of humanitarian disasters (Red Cross), fake news (NCIA), evidence (ICC), emergency funds (World Vision) and land grabbing (Asser Institute). We witnessed loads of great ideas, creativity and hard work! Congratulations to the organizers, mentors and all the participants for their hard work! See you next time! Hackathon
