Prof. Dr. Ratko Grbić

Prof. Dr. Ratko Grbić received his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in 2005 and 2013, respectively, both from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Computer Science and Information Technology Osijek, Croatia. He is currently working as an Associate Professor at the same institution here he teaches courses related to machine learning, internet of things and embedded systems. His research interests include machine learning, especially in the fields of image processing and computer vision, robotic vision, and automotive-related applications. As part of his scientific and research work, he has actively contributed to 10 research projects, co-invented 4 international patent applications, and authored 25 publications in international journals, along with 47 conference papers. Dr. Grbić's contributions have been recognized with awards, he was the best student in the third year of his profile at his home faculty and the best young researcher at his home faculty in 2014. As a co-author, he received the Special Merit Award and Best Paper Award at international conference Zooming Innovation in Consumer Electronics (ZINC) in 2021.
