Biosketch

Janez received his B.Sc. degree in 2008 and his PhD degree in 2013, both from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering of the University of Ljubljana. In 2008 he became a Junior Researcher at the Laboratory of Artificial Perception, Systems and Cybernetics where he focused on the development of 3D face recognition systems. From 2014 to mid-2015 he worked as a researcher on his post-doctoral project 3D-For-REAL (3D face recognition in real world conditions). Currently, he is working on his second post-doctoral project, partially funded by the Slovenian Research Agency. Over the last few years he collaborated on several national as well as international projects, among them two EU FP7 projects, namely RESPECT and SMART. Dr. Križaj is a member of the Slovenian Pattern Recognition Society and a member of the International Pattern Recognition Association (IAPR). His research interests include biometrics, face recognition, pattern recognition and image processing. Janez has published papers at various peer-reviewed journals and leading international conferences, such as the International Joint Conference on Biometrics (IJCB) or the International Conference on Automatic Face and Gesture Recognition (AFGR). Janez has two patent applications pending.
