maria04_100x100Dr.  Maria Pateraki is a researcher in the converging areas of Computer Vision and Photogrammetry. She obtained her Ph.D in Photogrammetry (IGP Group) from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich (ETHZ) and her Diploma in Rural and Surveying Engineering from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece. Since 2008 is a collaborating researcher at the Computational Vision and Robotics Lab in the Institute of Computer Science of the Foundation for Research and Technology-Hellas.

Prior to this post, she has been a research associate at the Geomatics Department of the University of Melbourne and the Cooperative Research Center for Spatial Information (CRC-SI) in Melbourne, Australia and a postdoctoral fellow at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece. Via her PhD research she collaborated with leading companies in the Geomatics and Photogrammetric sector for capturing and processing of 3D spatial information, Leica Geosystems (USA, Switzerland), North West Group (Canada), Pasco Corp. (Japan). She has also been a visiting assistant professor at the Computer Science Department of the University of Crete, Greece (2012-2014) and a visiting lecturer and postdoctoral fellow at the Aristotle University of Thesaloniki (2006-2007). She has been actively involved in more than 25 international, EU- and national- funded research projects, in the areas of Computer Vision and Photogrammetry for aerial, satellite, health, archaeological, architectural and robotic applications and her research focus is with respect to 2D/3D object extraction and tracking, 3D pose estimation, 3D reconstruction and image matching. Currently she is the Coordinator of the EU H2020 Research & Innovation Action project sustAGE: Smart environments for person-centered sustainable work and well-being and Co-PI of the EU H2020 Innovation Action project SMART BEAR: Smart Big Data Platform to Offer Evidence-based Personalised Support for Healthy and Independent Living at Home.
