Milind G. Padalkar


I am a postdoc at Pattern Analysis and Computer Vision (PAVIS) / Visual Geometry and Modelling (VGM) Research Line, Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT), Genova, Italy. Prior to joining IIT, I was working as a senior research engineer at Vehant Technologies (Mar. 2017 - Dec. 2018).

My Ph.D. thesis is titled "Novel Techniques for Auto-inpainting in Heritage Reconstruction", for which I worked under the supervision of Prof. Manjunath V. Joshi at Dhirubhai Ambani Institute of Information and Communication Technology (DA-IICT), Gandhinagar, India. At DA-IICT, I have also worked as teaching assistant and as a junior research fellow (JRF) in the Indian Digital Heritage (IDH)-Hampi project.

I completed M.Tech. in Computer Engineering under the supervision of Prof. M. A. Zaveri at S. V. National Institute of Technology (SVNIT), Surat, India in 2010 and B.E. in Information Technology from Finolex Academy of Management and Technology (FAMT), Ratnagiri (The University of Mumbai) in 2008.

I have co-authored the book titled "Digital Heritage Reconstruction Using Super-resolution and Inpainting" published under Synthesis Lectures on Visual Computing by Morgan & Claypool Publishers in December 2016.
