Dr Anil Bas is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Computer Engineering, Faculty of Technology, Marmara University, Turkey.
He completed his PhD degree in computer science under the supervision of Dr Will Smith in the CVPR Research Group at the University of York, UK in 2018. Funded by the Council of Higher Education (Turkey), his PhD focused on estimating 3D face shape from 2D images using geometric cues, i.e. semantically meaningful landmark points and contours. (For more information, please see his thesis and thesis seminar slides.) Prior to his doctoral degree, he received his MSc degree in computer engineering at Selcuk University, Turkey in 2013, and his BSc degree in electronics and computer education at Kocaeli University, Turkey in 2011.
His research interests include computer vision and machine learning – specifically geometric face analysis, statistical shape modelling, facial geometry in deep networks and ambiguity in shape reconstruction.
He is a Senior Researcher on the AI as Author project, supported by the Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey (TUBITAK) and hosted by Koc University, as well as a Researcher on the Transforming Systems through Partnership project, supported by Katip Celebi-Newton Fund, TUBITAK and the Royal Academy of Engineering, which is a collaborative initiative between Marmara University, Sheffield Hallam University, Analythinx and Istanbul's Maltepe Municipality.
He is Academic Advisor for 2019-2020 admissions, Erasmus Coordinator for the Computer Engineering Department and Co-supervisor of Marmara University Vision Lab.
