CNPq level 2

Personal Website: http://william.dcc.ufmg.br/

Associate Professor in the Department of Computer Science at the Federal University of Minas Gerais, Brazil. Research interests include Computer Vision, Smart Surveillance, Forensics, and Biometrics, in which he authored more than 150 scientific papers and coordinates research projects sponsored by several Brazilian Funding Agencies, such as CNPq, FAPEMIG and CAPES, and R&D projects sponsored by large companies such as Samsung, Hewlett-Packard and Petrobras.

He’s head of the Smart Sense Laboratory, a laboratory that fosters research on large-scale Surveillance. The Smart Sense Laboratory is composed of researchers, graduate and undergraduate students that investigate problems related to Video Surveillance, Forensics and Biometrics by developing techniques on Computer Vision, Pattern Recognition and Digital Image Processing. The research group tackles problems including feature extraction, pedestrian detection, tracking and identification, spoofing detection, face recognition, person re-identification, multi-camera tracking, active cameras, processing of data captured by wearable devices, optimization of deep learning models, anomaly detection and activity recognition.
