Stefan Stojanov


I am a PhD student in the School of Interactive Computing at the Georgia Institute of Technology advised by James Rehg. My main research interests are in computer vision and machine learning. I am interested in studying how the relationship between 3D computer vision, self-supervision, and learning from video can lead to computer vision systems that can generalize to novel concepts and settings with limited data.

In the Summer of 2021 I was a research intern at Facebook Reality Labs. In the Fall of 2018 and Summer of 2019 I was a research intern at Amazon Lab 126.

Before Georgia Tech I did my bachelors at Bard College. I worked on Summer research projects with Michael Lawrence at the Broad Institute and with Sven Anderson at BSRI (Bard Summer Research Institute).
