Applied Computer Vision, Animal Biometrics
Dr Tilo Burghardt is a computer science academic who researches animal biometrics and computer vision methods for the life sciences. His work focuses on using artificial intelligence and robotics to support biodiversity, sustainability, and animal welfare. He contributed to establishing animal biometrics as an emerging cross-discipline routed in pattern recognition and computer vision.
Tilo graduated with Distinction in Media Computing (Bakk. Medien-Inf.) at Dresden University of Technology in Germany. Subsequently, he received an MSc in Advanced Computing and a PhD in Computer Vision from the University of Bristol in the United Kingdom. After initial post-doctoral research at the School of Physics, he was awarded a Fellowship of the Research Councils UK and tenure as a Lecturer and later Senior Lecturer at the Visual Information Laboratory and the Intelligent Systems Laboratory at the University of Bristol.
Tilo is Associate Editor of IET Computer Vision. He is a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (HEA) and member of the German Academic Foundation (Studienstiftung des Deutschen Volkes). He has contributed to the British Machine Vision Association (BMVA) as chair of the 24th British Machine Vision Conference (BMVC).
Tilo's enthusiasm for computer science and computer vision is reflected in his dedication to teaching the subject. He has received the University of Bristol 'Award for Education' for his educational contributions to the Engineering Faculty. His scientific papers are listed on his Homepage and on Google Scholar.
