is Associate Professor of Computer Science at the University of California, Santa Barbara and Adjunct Professor in Media Arts and Technology. He co-directs the "Four Eyes Laboratory" conducting research in the four I's of Imaging, Interaction, and Innovative Interfaces. Tobias holds a graduate degree in informatics from the Technical University of Berlin and MS and PhD degrees in computer science from Columbia University. He is a recipient of the National Science Foundation's CAREER award, for his work on "Anywhere Augmentation", which enables computer users to place annotations in 3D space wherever they go, employing the physical world as user interface. Beyond this, Tobias's main research interests lie in virtual reality, 3D displays and interaction, visualization, mobile and wearable computing, and adaptive user interfaces.
is a Senior Researcher at the Computer Vision Laboratory, EPFL. He received the engineering and master degrees in Computer Science from the ESIAL in 1996. He received the PhD degree in Computer Vision in 2001 from the University of Nancy, France, after working in the ISA INRIA team. He then joined the Virtual Reality Lab at EPFL (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology) as a post-doctoral fellow and became a founding member of the Computer Vision Laboratory. His research interests include vision-based Augmented Reality, 3D camera tracking, object recognition and 3D reconstruction.
