Sanja Fidler is Assistant Professor at University of Toronto. Prior coming to Toronto, in 2012/2013, she was a Research Assistant Professor at Toyota Technological Institute at Chicago, an academic institute located in the campus of University of Chicago. Sanja did her postdoc with Prof. Sven Dickinson at University of Toronto in 2011/2012. She finished her PhD in 2010 at University of Ljubljana in Slovenia in the group of Prof. Ales Leonardis. In 2010, she was visiting Prof. Trevor Darrell's group at UC Berkeley and ICSI. She received her BSc degree in Applied Math at University of Ljubljana.
Sanja's work is in the area of Computer Vision. Her main research interests are 2D and 3D object detection, particularly scalable multi-class detection, object segmentation and image labeling, and (3D) scene understanding. I am also interested in the interplay between language and vision: generating sentential descriptions about complex scenes, as well as using textual descriptions for better scene parsing (e.g., in the scenario of the human-robot interaction).
