Simon Hecker

I am a PhD student at the Computer Vision Lab of ETH Zurich, advised by Prof. Luc Van Gool. I received my MsC in Electrical Engineering and Information Technology from ETH, Zurich in 2016 and my BASc in Computer Engineering from the University of British Columbia, Vancouver in 2014.

I am part of the TRACE Zurich group for autonomous driving. With my main focus being on end-to-end learning for driving, perception, route planning and navigation.
