Leo F. Isikdogan, PhD
Algorithms Engineer
Intel Corporation, Santa Clara, CA


I'm a researcher and engineer at Intel Corporation. I work on topics at the intersection of machine learning, computer vision, and image processing. I previously worked at Motorola Mobility / Lenovo as an Imaging Algorithm Staff Engineer. I received my PhD from The University of Texas at Austin, where I worked with Alan Bovik and Paola Passalacqua.

I have a YouTube channel, where I make educational videos on machine learning and image processing. Check it out and subscribe if you like the content!
