Vinay P. Namboodiri



Hi, I am a researcher in the areas of Computer Vision, Image Processing and Machine Learning

I am currently working as an Assistant Professor in the department of Computer Science and Engineering, IIT Kanpur.

I was earlier working at Bell Labs, Antwerp in the Video Technology department.

I have completed my Ph.D. under the guidance of Prof. Subhasis Chaudhuri from Department of Electrical Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay.

Subsequently I have done a postdoc at K.U. Leuven in the Visics group headed by Prof. Luc Van Gool.

My calendar can be checked here

 


I have the pleasure of working with a number of students. The list of students is available over here
