Melan Vijayaratnam

PhD Student


I am a PhD student at the intersection of multimedia, video coding, computer vision and machine learning advised by Dr. Marco Cagnazzo from University of Padova and Dr. Giuseppe Valenzise from CNRS. I started to work with Enzo Tartaglione as well from Telecom Paris.

I am part of the ZL-LVC project which aims at designing a video coding pipeline with arbitrary low latency. My approach consists in compensating latency through future video prediction to achieve arbitrarily low (or even zero) latency video communication.

I graduated from Georgia Tech with a Master and got involved with Dr.Patricio Vela’s lab on Deep Learning applied to robotic grasping.

Previously, I was at French engineer school called ENSEA where I graduated with a Bsc. and Msc. My final year internship was spent at the Driving Assistance Research lab of Valeo, within the Perception team where my work focused on Bayesian Deep Learning applied to 2D object detection.
