Emanuele Rodolà is Full Professor in Computer Science at Sapienza University of Rome, where he leads the GLADIA group on geometry, learning & applied AI. His research is funded by the ERC Starting Grant 2018 SPECGEO and a Google Research Scholar award.
Previously, he was a post-doctoral researcher at USI Lugano (2016-2017), an Alexander von Humboldt Fellow at TU Munich (2013-2016), and a JSPS Research Fellow at The University of Tokyo (2013). He received his PhD in Computer Science at Università Ca’ Foscari Venezia (2012), and graduated in Computer System Engineering at the University of Rome “Tor Vergata” (2008). During his doctoral studies, Dr. Rodolà spent a visiting research period at Tel Aviv University under the supervision of Prof. Alex Bronstein. He received a number of awards, including the Best Student Paper Award at 3DPVT 2010, the Best Paper Award at VMV 2015, and the Best Paper Award at SGP 2016. He has been serving in the program committees of the top rated conferences in computer vision (CVPR, ICCV, ECCV, ACCV, etc.), served as Area Chair at 3DV (2016, 2017), founded and chaired several workshops including the workshop on Geometry Meets Deep Learning (ECCV GMDL 2016, ICCV GMDL 2017), organized multiple SHREC contests, and was recognized (eight times) as IEEE Outstanding Reviewer, at CVPR (2013, 2015, 2016, 2017), ICCV (2015, 2017), and ECCV (2014, 2016). He gave tutorials and short courses in multiple occasions at EUROGRAPHICS, ECCV, SGP, SIGGRAPH, and SIGGRAPH Asia. His work on 3D reconstruction was featured by the national Italian television (RAI – Cose dell’altro Geo) in 2012.
Dr. Rodolà research interests include 3D shape analysis, matching, reconstruction and modeling.
