About Me

I am Tom Runia, PhD researcher at the University of Amsterdam working on Deep Learning under the supervision of professor Cees Snoek and Arnold Smeulders. Before coming to Amsterdam, I obtained a BSc. degree in Applied Physics and MSc. degree in Computer Science, both from Delft University of Technology. For my Master thesis, I interned at TomTom research lab in Eindhoven, where I worked on accelerating object detection algorithms for autonomous driving applications. My main research interests are in learning video representations, visual counting, temporal modeling and deep learning. For the last two years, I have been teaching assistant for the Deep Learning course at the University of Amsterdam. Motivated students are welcome to write me about project supervision.
