I am an assistant professor at University of Toronto. Prior coming to Toronto, in 2012/2013, I was a research assistant professor at Toyota Technological Institute at Chicago. I did my postdoc with Prof. Sven Dickinson at University of Toronto. I finished my PhD in 2010 at University of Ljubljana, Slovenia in the group of Prof. Ales Leonardis. In 2010, I was visiting Prof. Trevor Darrell's group at the International Computer Science Institute (ICSI) and UC Berkeley. More information is in my CV.

My work is in the area of Computer Vision. My main research interests are 2D and 3D object detection, particularly scalable multi-class detection, object segmentation and image labeling, and (3D) scene understanding. I am also interested in the interplay between language and vision: generating sentential descriptions about complex scenes, as well as using textual descriptions for better scene parsing (e.g., in the scenario of the human-robot interaction).
