About Isaac Esteban

My name is Isaac Esteban and I am a PhD candidate at the University of Amsterdam. My work, promoted by TNO, focuses on 3D reconstruction of urban areas. Supervised by Prof. Frans Groen I investigate together with TNO and the NFI methods for robust and fast 3D reconstruction to be used in forensic research.

After 3 years of intense work I am now visiting at EPFL. My work, together with the CvLab team, will focus for the next months on semantic 3D modeling at the city size level.

Below you will find a list of selected publications. If you have any questions regarding me or FIT3D, please do not hesitate to drop me a line at:
