Room 211C, Campus E1.4, 66123 Saarbrücken, Germany
Srinath Sridhar, Ooty, 2013-Dec I am a 4th year CS PhD student in the Graphics, Vision, and Video Group at the Max Planck Institute for Informatics, Saarland Informatics Campus. I am advised by Christian Theobalt and Antti Oulasvirta. My research interests are in computer vision and human–computer interaction.

I was previously an intern at Microsoft Research Redmond working with Shahram Izadi.

I completed a masters degree in EECS at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor and a bachelors degree at the College of Engineering Guindy, Anna University. I also interned at the Honda Research Institute where I worked with Victor Ng-Thow-Hing.
