Dr. Alex Liniger

Alex Liniger is a postdoctoral researcher at the Computer Vision Lab at ETH Zurich, working within the TRACE project (Toyota Research on Automated Cars in Europe). His current research interests lie in the area of autonomous driving and include end-to-end policy learning, safe decision making, and motion planning for at-limit handling.

Before joining the TRACE project in 2019, he was a member of the Automatic Control Lab at ETH Zurich, where he obtained his PhD under the supervision of Prof. John Lygeros in 2018. His PhD mainly focused on safe motion and path planning for autonomous cars at the limit of handling (Video explaining his research). However, also included topics such as, game-theoretic planning, learning in control, optimization-based collision avoidance and the application of these methods.

Before starting his PhD, Alex Liniger received the B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in mechanical engineering from the Department of Mechanical and Process Engineering, ETH Zurich, Switzerland, in 2010 and 2013.

Dr. Christos Sakaridis

Christos Sakaridis is a postdoctoral researcher at Computer Vision Lab, ETH Zurich. His broad research fields are Computer Vision and Machine Learning. The focus of his research is on high-level visual perception in adverse conditions, domain adaptation, segmentation, depth estimation, and synthetic data generation, with emphasis on their application to autonomous cars. He is a member of the TRACE-Zurich project on automated driving.

Christos obtained his PhD in Electrical Engineering and Information Technology from ETH Zurich in June 2021, working at Computer Vision Lab and supervised by Prof. Luc Van Gool. Prior to joining Computer Vision Lab, he received his MSc in Computer Science from ETH Zurich in 2016 and his Diploma in Electrical and Computer Engineering from National Technical University of Athens in 2014, conducting his Diploma thesis at CVSP Group under the supervision of Prof. Petros Maragos.
