Hi everyone!

My name is Luca Bertelli and I am software engineer at Google, where I work on various exciting problems related in particular to visual search and, more in general, to computer vision and machine learning. Previously I was a graduate student at UCSB, a software engineer intern at Google, research scientist at Mayachitra and a senior researcher at Like.com.
I grew up in San Martino in Rio, a small town in northern Italy, and then I moved to beautiful Santa Barbara, California to pursue my PhD in the field of Computer Vision and Image Processing under the guidance of prof B.S. Manjunath. My research interests are spanning the area of pattern recognition and machine learning, with particular focus on variational methods for image segmentation.

I hope you enjoy browsing my website and if you have any comments send me an e-mail.
