My name is Joao Carreira. I am a postdoctoral scholar in Prof. Jitendra Malik's group at EECS, UC Berkeley.
My research targets the development of techniques that make it possible to robustly recover rich and accurate descriptions of objects from a single image, in particular of their shapes. My full cv is here.
I did my Ph.D. with Prof. Cristian Sminchisescu in the formidable group he had at the University of Bonn, working on segmentation and recognition techniques. We did a
noise on the Pascal VOC Challenges.
Afterwards I did postdoctoral work in Prof. Jorge Batista's awesome group in ISR-Coimbra, with which I am also affiliated.
My full list of publications and corresponding bibtex files can be consulted on my google scholar account .
