Research overview

  I direct the Computational Vision and Geometry Lab (CVGL) at Stanford. Our research addresses the theoretical foundations and practical applications of computational vision. Our interest lies in discovering and proposing the fundamental principles, algorithms and implementations for solving high level visual recognition and reconstruction problems such as object and scene understanding as well as human behavior recognition in the complex 3D world.
  • Our paper “Structural-RNN: Deep Learning on Spatio-Temporal Graphs” with A. Jain, A. Zamir, and A. Saxena won the Best Student Award at CVPR 2016.
  • I will be the general chair of the 4th International Conference on 3D Vision – 3DV (2016).
  • I am an area chair of ECCV 2016.
  • I am an associate editor of IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence (PAMI), starting January 2016.
  • Our paper “Semantic Cross-View Matching” with F. Castaldo, A. R. Zamir, R. Angst and F. Palmieri, won the Best Paper Runner-up Award at ICCV workshop (VFSTS Workshop), 2015.
  • I am a co-editor of Computer Vision and Image Understanding (CVUI) special issue on “Shape Representations Meet Visual Recognition”, 2015.
  • I am an area chair of ICCV 2015
  • I am a co-chair and organizer of 3dRR-15 – 5th IEEE international workshop on “3D Representation for Recognition”, in conjunction with IEEE International Conference on Computer Vision (ICCV13), December, 2015
  • I am an area chair of CVPR 2015.
  • I am an area chair of ECCV 2014.
