Dr. Fabio Galasso heads the Computer Vision Department at OSRAM in Germany. The R&D interests of the group involve computer vision, machine learning and multimodal computing, in relation to smart lighting applications. Specific activities regard detection, recognition, tracking and re-identification, the recognition and reconstruction of 3D scenes, domain adaptation and the estimation of lighting.

Fabio is a former associate of the Max Planck Institute for Informatics and the University of Cambridge, where he researched video analysis, pattern learning from videos, segmentation and clustering, towards the understanding of dynamic scenes.

Fabio read Electrical Engineering and Signal Processing for Telecommunications at RomaTre University in Rome and graduated (UK and US equivalent: Master's Degree) cum laude (with honours). Then, he joined the Department of Engineering and St. John's College in Cambridge for a PhD on Shape-from-Texture, focusing on the spectral analysis of homogeneous textures and the 3D-shape reconstruction.

Before and after his Master's Degree, he gained experience as a Researcher in the Ericsson Laboratories and as a Project Engineer in Telecom Italia. In his career, he has been involved in consulting work relating to computer vision.

Fabio is passionate about new ideas and transforming them into products.
