Namdar Homayounfar

I am a research scientist at Waabi where I work on HD map creation for autonomous cars. Previously I worked at Uber ATG Toronto as a reasearcher.

I also graduated in 2022 with a PhD degree in Computer Science from University of Toronto under the supervision of Prof. Raquel Urtasun. Prior to that, I obtained a MSc in Statistical Sciences at University of Toronto and a BSc in Probability and Statistics at McGill University.

My general research interests include machine learning and computer vision and in particular their applications in autononmous driving. During my PhD, I have focused on developing deep structured models for the task of scalable HD mapping and scene labeling for autonomous cars.
