About me

I am a senior lecturer of Applied Mathematics in the Department of Mathematical Sciences at Stellenbosch University, South Africa. I teach and have taught various undergraduate and postgraduate courses in Applied Mathematics and Computer Science. My research interests fall mainly in the broader fields of computer vision and machine learning. I've worked on multi-view geometry for 3D reconstruction, visual odometry, recognition and tracking, probabilistic graphical models, and deep learning. I have recently taken an interest in visual knowledge representation and visual grounding of natural language.

Since 2017 I've been very actively involved in the organization of the amazing Deep Learning Indaba. Truly an honour!
