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'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

I was born and raised in Kırıkkale, 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.

My research interests include high dynamic range imaging, immersive multimedia, human visual perception, computer vision, video processing, and multimedia quality assessment. I also worked on projects related to video transmission and target detection during my B.Sc. and M.Sc. studies.

Research


My current research is focused on three main topics: 3D and immersive multimedia, subjective and objective multimedia quality assessment, and high dynamic range imaging. For a full list of publications, you may check Pubs page.

To support reproducible research, I provide some of the databases created and tools developed during our studies. Please check Tools page if you would like to use them.


— 3D and Immersive Multimedia —

Within V-SENSE research group, I currently work on the quality assessment and visual perception of various 3D and immersive multimedia and their applications including volumetric videos and extended reality. Some of the topics I've been working on:

  • User immersion for augmented and virtual reality applications
  • Subjective and objective quality assessment of point clouds
  • Visualization of acquired 3D models either in polygonal mesh or point cloud format
    • WebGL viewer [link] - powered by three.js

Previously, I also worked on some other projects, including;


— Subjective & Objective Multimedia Quality Assessment —

Multimedia quality assessment is a central theme in my research, and it is directly related to human vision and perception topics. I study both subjective and objective quality assessment of various multimedia, including;

  • Effects of cross-content comparisons on pairwise comparisons experiments [HVEI 2018]
  • A discriminability analysis method for the analysis of metric performance [QUEX 2017] | Source Code
  • A spatiotemporal no-reference video quality metric [ICIP 2014, ICIP 2013]


— High Dynamic Range Imaging —

I worked on several aspects of high dynamic range (HDR) imaging and effects of HDR technology on human perception. Some of these works focus on:

These studies resulted in a few tools and databases:
