Aaron Mavrinac: Academic
I obtained my Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Windsor in 2012. I worked in the Advanced Control Systems Laboratory, researching camera networks and 3D computer vision.
My research interests include 3D computer vision, camera networks, camera calibration, vision-based control, and robotics. Overall, I want to contribute to a better understanding of the interplay between the physical world and electronic perception and sensing.
My Ph.D. dissertation topic involves mathematically modeling the coverage of multi-camera systems for purposes of understanding, evaluation, and optimization. My M.A.Sc. thesis was a distributed feature-based method for calibrating 3D camera networks. I have also worked on several other major projects involving multi-camera systems, calibration, 3D vision, and robotics.
