Description

Francisco Escolano received his Bachelors degree in Computer Science from the Polytechnical University of Valencia (Spain) in 1992 and his Ph degree in Computer Science from the University of Alicante in 1997. Since 1998, he is an Associate Professor with the Department of Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence of the University of Alicante. He has been post-doctoral fellow with Dr. Norberto M. Grzywacz at the Biomedical Engineering Department of the University of South California in Los Angeles, and he has also collaborated with Dr. Alan L. Yuille at the Smith-Kettlewell Eye Research Institute of San Francisco. Recently, he visited the Liisa Holm's Bioinformatics Lab at the University of Helsinki.

His research interests are focused on the development of efficient and reliable computer-vision algorithms for biomedical applications (tracking of intravascular sequences), active vision and robotics (mid-level geometric structures obtained through junction grouping, stereo and appearance based methods for the localization of mobile robots, SLAM), and video-based surveillance (motion detection and object tracking). He is also interested in the coupling between computer and biological vision. He is the head of the Robot Vision Group.
