          Danda Paudel is a Computer Vision Researcher, who seeks to understand what it means to see from the algorithmic point of view. In particular, his interests include the perception of 3D scenes and humans, in the form of both reconstruction and understanding, using only the visual data. In recent years, Danda has been working on various visual perception topics, including; 3D reconstruction, camera localization, human emotion understanding, knowledge transfer across visual domains, 3D objects and scene understanding. Danda enjoys exploiting the static and dynamic 3D scene priors for learning visual features and their abstractions, in self- and semi-supervised fashions.

          Spent my childhood tinkering, assembling tree houses, and attempting to construct a car and a submarine. Got acquainted with the world of electronics and programming at PFE seminars. Working with pleasure on this team project for the last ten years and counting. Besides that, I attempted to run a business, design some robots - it didn't go as planned but a lot has been learned in the process, so I decided to start my career as a bioinformatician, and then to develop machine learning models at Microsoft in Belgrade. In addition, I love spending summertime in the mountains, paragliding, diving, skiing, jumping from a plane, photography, and everything that has to do with various adventures. Before everything became so much fun, I was born in 1991 in Valjevo.
