Byung-Kuk Seo, Ph.D.
I am a senior researcher in Communication & Media 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. During my Ph.D., I had the good fortune to collaborate with Dr. Slobodan Ilic in Chair for Computer Aided Medical Procedures & Augmented Reality (CAMP) at Technical University of Munich (TUM)Before joining the ETRI, I was a 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.

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 been collaborating with outstanding researchers in my field: Dr. Harald Wuest (Visometry/Fraunhofer IGD, Germany), Dr. Slobodan Ilic (Siemens AG Corporate Technology/Technical University of Munich (TUM), Germany),  Dr. Stefan Hinterstoissor (Google 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), Dr. Kangsoo Kim (University of Central Florida, US), Jungsik Park (Hanyang University, South Korea).
