Tilo Burghardt


Dr Tilo Burghardt holds a Lectureship in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Bristol, UK. He graduated with Distinction in Media Computing (Bakk. Medien-Inf.) at Dresden University of Technology (Germany). Subsequently, he received an MSc in Advanced Computing and PhD in Computer Vision from the University of Bristol (UK). After initial post-doctoral research at the School of Physics, he was awarded a Fellowship of the Research Councils UK. His research focuses on animal biometrics and applied computer vision. He pioneered the study of visual recognition in the context of monitoring natural environments and contributed to establishing Visual Animal Biometrics as an emerging novel cross-discipline routed in computer vision. His research has reached out to the general public via the international press, science exhibitions and national television. Burghardt is a member of the British Machine Vision Association (BMVA) and the German Academic Foundation.
