Byung-Kuk SEO, Ph.D.

I am a senior researcher in SW & Content Research Lab. at Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute (ETRI)

I earned my Ph.D. in Electronics and Computer Engineering at Hanyang University under the supervision of Prof. Jong-Il Park, and received M.Sc. and B.Sc. from Hanyang University as well. During my Ph.D., I spent some time in Chair for Computer Aided Medical Procedures & Augmented Reality (CAMP) at Technical University of Munich (TUM) as a graduate visiting fellow under the supervision of Dr. Slobodan Ilic. 

Before joining the ETRI, I had a half-year postdoc in Mixed Reality Lab. at Hanyang University under the guidance of Prof. Jong-Il Park. And then, I moved to Dept. of Virtual and Augmented Reality at Fraunhofer Institute for Computer Graphics (IGD) and worked as a postdoctoral research fellow under the guidance of Dr. Harald Wuest, granted by European Research Consortium for Informatics and Mathematics (ERCIM) fellowship.

My research interests are mainly 3D computer vision for augmented reality, including 6D pose estimation / localization and mapping, low level feature description and matching, and camera calibration. I am also interested in augmented reality in industrial, medical, educational, art, or game applications. 

To date, I have collaborated with outstanding researchers in my field: Dr. Harald Wuest (Fraunhofer IGD, Germany), Dr. Slobodan Ilic (Siemens AG Corporate Technology / Technical University of Munich (TUM), Germany),  Dr. Stefan Hinterstoissor (X, Germany), Prof. Hideaki Uchiyama (Kyushu University, Japan), Prof. Jong-Il Park (Hanyang University, South Korea), Prof. Hanhoon Park (Pukyong National University, South Korea), Dr. Moon-Hyun Lee (LG Electronics, South Korea), Kangsoo Kim (University of Central Florida, US), Jungsik Park (Hanyang University, South Korea. I am always welcoming any opportunities for great research collaborations!
