Mehmet Aygün

I am a Ph.D. student at the University of Edinburgh working with Oisin Mac Aodha. My research revolves around developing methods for image understanding, where I aim to create systems that capable of reasoning about objects and their intricate relationships with minimal or no supervision.

Prior, I had the privilege of collaborating with Laura Leal-Taixé on problems related to 3/4D scene understanding during my master's degree at the Technical University of Munich.

  • Jul 2022, Our paper about unsupervised semantic correspondence is accepted to ECCV, 2022.
  • Feb 2021, Our paper titled 4D Panoptic Lidar Segmentation is accepted to CVPR, 2021.
  • Oct 2020, Our paper about 3D shape correspondence is accepted to 3DV, 2020.
  • Jun 2018, I received DAAD scholarship for studying in Germany.
  • Oct 2017, at ICCV 2017, our paper received Honorable Mention Award from TASK-CV workshop.

I am interested in computer vision and machine learning. In particular, I am interested in developing image understanding models that can learn fundamental priors and representations through self-supervision alone. Examples of which include investigating the role of shape in semantic understanding.
