My name is Matteo Dunnhofer.

I am currently a postdoc researcher in the Machine Learning and Perception Lab of the University of Udine.

I come from Tarvisio, a small town located in the Italian Alps. I received the BSc and MSc in Computer Science from the University of Udine (Udine, Italy) in 2016 and 2018 respectively. In 2022, at the same institute, I obtained the PhD in Industrial and Information Engineering under the supervision of Prof. Christian Micheloni. I held visiting positions at the Australian Centre for Robotic Vision hosted at the Queensland University of Technology (Brisbane, Australia) and at the University of Alcalà (Madrid, Spain).

The goal of my research is to let machines sense and understand how objects move and change through time, by learning from real-world examples. More specifically, I design and implement deep learning algorithms to tackle problems in computer vision, in particular for visual object tracking. I am also very keen in applying such methods in the context of medical image analysis in order to let computers improve people's health, and into the sport domain for video-based performance analysis. On these topics, I published several papers in international conferences and journals, and I received an award for winning the Visual Object Tracking VOT2021 long-term challenge held at ICCV 2021.

I serve as reviewer for the most relevant conferences and journals in computer vision (CVPR, ICCV, ECCV, WACV, TPAMI, IJCV), pattern recognition (ICPR, PR), robotics (ICRA, RA-L), and medical image analysis (MIDL, MedIA, TMI). I was recognized as an outstanding reviewer by ECCV 2022. I have been also involved in the organization of a series of workshops on Computer Vision for Winter Sports at WACV and of an object tracking challenge at CVPR 2023.
