Jan-Michael Frahm
Jan-Michael Frahm is a research assistant professor in the 3D computer vision group at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. In 1999 he received his Diploma in computer science from Lübeck University in Germany. In 2005 he graduated from the Christian-Albrechts-University of Kiel, Germany, with a Ph.D. about sensor augmented camera calibration. He published more than 40 scientific papers in journals and conferences. Jan-Michael Frahm received the best thesis of the academic year 2005/2006 award from the school of engineering at Christian-Albrechts-University, the best demo award at CVPR 2007 for “Real-time Urban Reconstruction" and the best poster award at ISPRS 2008. His research areas are reliable real-time 3D reconstruction from video and photo collections, camera self-calibration, sensor augmented camera systems, multi-view stereo, multi-camera systems, robust estimation, fast tracking. He has used the computational power of the GPU in many of his approaches to achieve real-time performance. Dr. Frahm's research has been or is sponsored by DARPA, IARPA, ONR, NVIDIA, Lockheed Martin and Honda.
