Emin Zerman Hi! I am a post-doctoral researcher in the V-SENSE research project at Graphics Vision Visualization (GV2) group of School of Computer Science and Statistics (SCSS) at Trinity College Dublin (TCD), working with Prof. Aljosa Smolic.

About Me


I was born and raised in Kirikkale, Turkey. I got my B.Sc. degree from Middle East Technical University, Turkey, Electrical and Electronics Engineering department with High Honors. I took Computer area specialization courses on my last year. I got my M.Sc. degree in the same department in the area of Computers. My M.Sc. thesis title is "A Portable Stereo Video Streaming System" which is supervised by Prof. Gözde Bozdağı Akar.

I completed my Ph.D. LTCI (Laboratoire Traitement et Communication de l'Information) at Télécom ParisTech, as a part of Multimedia group of IDS (Image, Données, Signal - former Traitement du Signal et des Images (TSI)) department. My Ph.D. thesis is titled as "Assessment and Analysis of High Dynamic Range Video Quality" and supervised by Dr. Frédéric Dufaux and Dr. Giuseppe Valenzise.

I'm currently working as a post-doctoral researcher in the V-SENSE research project at Graphics Vision Visualization (GV2) group of School of Computer Science and Statistics (SCSS) at Trinity College Dublin (TCD). V-SENSE project is led by Prof. Aljosa Smolic

My research interests include HDR and SDR image and video processing, video compression and transmission, computer vision, immersive multimedia, and 3D technologies. I also worked on projects related to Real-Time 3D Video Transmission from Embedded Platforms to Mobile Devices, Objective and Subjective Video Quality Assesment, and Target Detection using Satellite Images, during my B.Sc. and M.Sc. studies.
