Hi! I am a PhD candidate at Eindhoven, university of Technology, at the VCA group of the Electrical Engineering Department. My research is aimed at improving the semantic understanding of 3D modeled environments, with a focus on applications regarding intelligent vehicles. Currently, I am working on improving sensing capabilities of mobile platforms using multiple sensors that capture different modalities. On such platforms, data should be captured and processed in real-time, so efficient data fusion methods -both in time and over modalities- will need to be developed.
You can also find me on linkedin, my research group webpage, on researchgate and google scholar. Within the TU/e-VCA group, I am a member of the Mobile Perception System research cluster.
