The Interdisciplinary Center,
I joined the school of computer science at the Interdisciplinary Center, Herzliya in 1999. I am senior lecturer in the Efi Arazi School of Computer Science. I finished my Ph.D. in 1994 at the Department of Computer Science at the Weizmann Institute of Science, Rehovot. During the years 1993-1994 I was a Post-doctoral fellow, at the Robotics group of Oxford University. From 1997-1998 I was a post-doctoral fellow at the Weizmann Institute of Science. I spent the years 2004-2007 on sabbatical in Sydney at NICTA and UNSW.
My research interest is in the field of computer vision, in which images or videos are analyzed to understand the scene viewed by the cameras. My early work concentrated on theoretical limitations of object recognition based on a single image. Later, my interest shifted to deal with multi-camera systems, which extend the single-camera setup in a nontrivial way, and significantly increase the capabilities of computer vision systems. My main passion is in developing efficient solutions for applications that are too challenging to solve using a single camera by using a multi-camera system. I am especially interested in efficient fusion of the available information from a set of cameras, and the scalability of computer vision algorithms for large systems of cameras.
