About Me

Hi, I'm Kaleab. I am an AI enthusiast who is currently a second year graduate student of Erasmus Mundus Master's Joint Program in Image Processing and Computer Vision. I have worked as a Assistant Lecturer at Addis Ababa University, which is the top and largest university in Ethiopia. I have also worked as a Research Assistant at VPU Lab @ Autonomous University of Madrid, Spain. I will soon join TU Graz Institute of Computer Graphics and Vision as a Research Associate (Scientific Employee) to do my Master’s thesis on ‘Continual Lifelong learning on Autonomous Vehicles’.

My research interests are in scene understanding, 3D reconstruction, and Mixed Reality. I am most excited when working on pioneering research projects. I am fascinated by impactful research projects, but I am also keen to make contributions that advances the state of the art in computer vision while being applicable to other research areas. Today, my journey has led me to my passion: to work on cutting edge applications of computer vision and deep learning in numerous application areas. I'm deeply interested in the fields of Computer vision, Deep learning, Artificial Intelligence, Machine autonomy and Product development.

I'm extremely enthusiastic about AI and its power to make our world a better place to live; and I want to contribute my part on this captivating and wonderful scientific field working to solve the open problems in Computer Vision so as to build autonomous systems that can "see" and reason.
