Dr. Stamatios Georgoulis

Stamatios Georgoulis is a post-doctoral researcher at the CVL group of ETH Zurich, working within the R&D project "TRACE: Toyota Research on Automated Cars in Europe". His current research interests are in the area of autonomous driving, including image generation, semantic segmentation, and multi-task learning.

Before joining TRACE, he was a doctoral student at the PSI group of KU Leuven, where he received his PhD under the supervision of Prof. Van Gool and Prof. Tuytelaars, focusing on extracting surface characteristics and lighting from images. Further back, he received his diploma in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, where he also worked as a student research assistant and participated in Microsoft's Imagine Cup Software Design Competition with the research project "Epione: An Innovative Pain Management Solution".

He regularly serves as a reviewer in major Machine Learning and Computer Vision conferences (NeurIPS, CVPR, ICCV, etc.) with distinctions.

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.
