I am an assistant professor at University of Toronto.
I did my postdoc with Prof. Sven Dickinson at University of Toronto. I finished my PhD in 2010 at University of Ljubljana in the group of Prof. Ales Leonardis. In 2010, I was visiting
Prof. Trevor Darrell's group at the International Computer Science Institute (ICSI) as well as at UC Berkeley. In 2012/2013 I was a research assistant professor at Toyota Technological Institute at Chicago.
More information is in my cv.
My main research interests are object detection, particularly scalable multi-class detection, 3D object recognition and detection, object and scene segmentation, and (3D) scene understanding. I am also interested in the interplay between language and vision: generating sentential descriptions from complex scenes, as well as using sentential descriptions for better scene parsing (for example, in the scenario of the human-robot interaction).
