Simon Korman

I am a faculty member of the Department of Computer Science at the University of Haifa. My research in the field of Computer Vision.

Until recently, I was a postdoc at the Weizmann Institute of Science, supervised by Ronen Basri and previously a postdoc at UCLA supervised by Stefano Soatto.

I completed my PhD working with Shai Avidan at Tel-Aviv University, my MSc with Uriel Feige at the Weizmann Institute of Science and I hold a BSc in mathematics and computer science from the Hebrew University.

Research Interests

Computer Vision, with a focus on geometry oriented problems, such as establishing visual correspondence, template matching, camera pose estimation, and recovering the 3D structure and motion in a scene. In particular, I am interested in the application of techniques from robust estimation, deep learning, randomized sampling and sublinear algorithms to such problems.
