Biography

Mihai Bâce is a post-doctoral researcher in the Perceptual User Interfaces group since December 2020. He did his PhD at ETH Zurich, Switzerland, in the Distributed Systems Group at the Institute for Intelligent Interactive Systems. He studied for his Master's degree at École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) and for his Bachelor's at the Technical University of Cluj-Napoca in Romania. His research interests are in Human-Computer Interaction with a focus on computational aspects and has influences from both Machine Learning and Computer Vision.
