I am currently at the                                            

   Department of Statistics                                        

   University of California Los Angeles.                  

 

   I now belong to the faculty at the                
   Department of Electrical Engineering (personal hompage)              

   In the Technion - Israel Institute of Technology.

Research interests - computer vision and math


I'm interested in the host of fundamental problems in computer vision leading up to object recognition.

 

Current research: collaborating with David Mumford on the study of 2D shapes. 

 

Program Committees: ECCV’04, CVPR’04. CVPR’05, ECCV’06, CVPR’06, EMMCVPR’07.
