I am an Associate Professor at University of Toronto, affiliated faculty at the Vector Institute (and was one of the co-founding members) and VP of AI Research at NVIDIA, leading a research lab in Toronto. Prior coming to Toronto, in 2012/2013, I was a Research Assistant Professor at Toyota Technological Institute at Chicago, an academic institute located in the campus of University of Chicago. My work is in the area of Computer Vision and Machine Learning. My main research interests are in the intersection of computer vision and graphics, 3D vision, 3D reconstruction and synthesis; and interactive methods for image annotation. I originally come from Slovenia. My name is pronounced as Sania. More information is in my CV.

I'm looking for motivated MSc/PhD and visiting students, as well as postdocs.
