Researcher

About

Iā€™m researcher at Microsoft Research (MSR), in the eXtreme Computing Group (XCG). My current research focus on Augmented Reality and other computer graphics/vision problems.

I received my PhD from the Tel Aviv University in Israel, and joined Microsoft in 2010.

Prior to joining XCG, I worked as a researcher at Bing Mobile and mapping, developing a system that allows a user to add in-doors mapping information to Bing Maps. By geo-register sketches/floor-plans or any other non-exact visual media to a global map, the user was able to semi-automatically trace and annotate additional information to map, such as interior structure information, public facilities information and more.
