Short Bio

I am a Ph.D. candidate under the supervision of Ole Ravn in the Department of Electrical Engineering at the Technical University of Denmark. During my Ph.D., I am also spending time and taking part in ongoing research in the Computer Vision Group of Stella Yu, and under the supervision of Sascha Hornauer, at the International Computer Science Institute at UC Berkeley. I received my B.Eng. and M.Sc. degree from the Department of Electrical Engineering at the Technical University of Denmark, and spend a semester abroad at Queensland University of Technology.

My research is in Computer Vision and Machine/Deep Learning applications for perception, recognition, and data analysis using multiple sensor modalities. Currently, my focus is within the maritime domain.

Automatic Boulder Identification in Side-Scan Sonar

Automatic Boulder Identification in Side-Scan Sonar

Side-scan data is automatically processed to estimate boulder positions and generate metadata.

Side-Scan Sonar Imaging: Real-Time Acoustic Streaming

Side-Scan Sonar Imaging: Real-Time Acoustic Streaming

Live side-scan sonar stream is compressed to below 1.87 kbit/s and reconstructed to high-quality estimations on the receiving end.

SeaShark: Towards a Modular Multi-Purpose Man-Portable AUV

SeaShark: Towards a Modular Multi-Purpose Man-Portable AUV

We present the SeaShark AUV; an in-house developed small, easily configurable, one-man-operational autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV)

Single Image Super-Resolution for Domain-Specific Ultra-Low Bandwidth Image Transmission

Single Image Super-Resolution for Domain-Specific Ultra-Low Bandwidth Image Transmission

Original underwater images are downsampled to a low-resolution low-size thumbnail to be transmitted over acoustics. We learn to reconstruct the transmitted low-res image to high-res super-resolved version.

Deep Learning based Segmentation of Fish in Noisy Forward Looking MBES Images

Deep Learning based Segmentation of Fish in Noisy Forward Looking MBES Images

We predict binary segmentation masks on sonar images to detect fishes.

BatVision with GCC-PHAT Features for Better Sound to Vision Predictions

BatVision with GCC-PHAT Features for Better Sound to Vision Predictions

We improve our previous BatVision sound-to-vision model.

BatVision: Learning to See 3D Spatial Layout with Two Ears

BatVision: Learning to See 3D Spatial Layout with Two Ears

We predict 2D and 3D spatial layout from binaural echolocation.

Detection, Localization and Classification of Fish and Fish Species in Poor Conditions using Convolutional Neural Networks

Detection, Localization and Classification of Fish and Fish Species in Poor Conditions using Convolutional Neural Networks

We predict the location and specie of fish in poor underwater images.
