Research topics: parameter estimation problems in system identification and computer vision, model reconstruction in the presence of measurement noise

Brief description: As part of my research work, I worked on parameter estimation problems in the so-called errors-in-variables context. In this setting, one is interested in discovering the relationship between measured variables of a system. The difficulty arises from that one is not able to identify a dependent variable and a set of independent variables and employ standard tools in statistics. In contrast, all variables are noisy, and the system is best captured with an implicit equation f(x)=0. Such problems are difficult when f is a linear relationship and there is no information on the measurement noise but even more so for nonlinear f.

With applications in computer vision and pattern recognition, I proposed fast, robust and accurate methods for estimating parameters of curves and surfaces captured with an implicit model f(x)=0, and clustering methods for scattered point clouds (e.g. 3D data acquired with a laser scanner) in which the entire model is a composition of such curves and surfaces. In the context of identifying dynamic systems (when observations are coupled in time), I proposed an effective nonlinear parameter estimation method.

In addition, I taught several courses on introductory programming, databases and software design, and took part in open- and closed-source projects.
