Daniel Herrera C.

Daniel Herrera C. works as a computer vision researcher at the University of Oulu, Finland. He is currently doing his PhD in the areas of image based rendering and free viewpoint video. His early work with the Kinect led him to develop an open source calibration algorithm. The Kinect Calibration Toolbox is now being used by researchers around the world. Since then the Kinect has become one of the main tools for his research.

Daniel received his bachelor in systems engineering at the young age of 18 from the Universidad Latina de Costa Rica. He also received a bachelor in electronics engineering from the ITCR (Costa Rica) and a master in computer vision and robotics from the erasmus mundus program Vibot, a joint program between the Heriot-Watt University (UK), Universitat de Girona (Spain), and l'Universit de Bourgogne (France).
