Michael Wilber

My picture

Hello! My name is Michael Wilber. I am a Ph.D. student studying at the Cornell Tech SE(3) Vision Group under Dr. Serge Belongie. I previously worked as a research assistant in the Vision and Security Technology lab and as a software engineer at Securics, Inc., both under Terrance E. Boult. I recently spent a semester at lovely UCSD before following my advisor to Cornell and eventually Cornell Tech.

Most of my work applies to computer vision and privacy-enhanced biometrics. My low threshold for boredom draws me to many subjects, including computer graphics, distributed computing, functional programming language design, music, arts, and alternative user interfaces.

People tell me that I look like a certain computer vision researcher.

My hobbies include recreational programming, arguing with friends about text editors, studying dead programming languages, and playing musical instruments with mixed success.

I was a student in the Summer 2011 NSF REU (Research Experience for Undergraduates) program at UCCS. I am a co-inventor (along with Terrance E. Boult) of a US Provisional Patent, titled "A System and Method For Privacy Security Enhanced Vaulted Verification".


Throughout my academic career, I am grateful to be supported by Dr. Serge Belongie, the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship, Oath, Adobe, the faculty and staff at Cornell Tech, and and my friends and family. I am an Oath PhD fellow.
