Gabriele Fanelli

Welcome to my homepage!

I received my PhD in April 2012 from the Computer Vision Laboratory (Biwi), under the supervision of Prof. Luc Van Gool. I have received a Master of Science in Computer Engineering (laurea V.O.) from the University of Rome "Sapienza", after developing my thesis at the Image Coding Group, Linköping University. I am currently working as software engineer at faceshift.

My research interests lie where the fields of computer vision, machine learning, human-computer interaction, and computer graphics meet. My PhD had a specific focus on multimodal facial behavior analysis.
