Boris Ivanovic is a Manager in NVIDIA's Autonomous Vehicle Research Group. Prior to joining NVIDIA, he received his Ph.D. in Aeronautics and Astronautics under the supervision of Marco Pavone in 2021 and an M.S. in Computer Science in 2018, both from Stanford University. He received his B.A.Sc. in Engineering Science from the University of Toronto in 2016.
Boris' research interests are rooted in behavior prediction and its interactions with the rest of the autonomy stack. This usually includes a mix of improving raw prediction performance, integrating prediction with perception and planning, leveraging human behavior models for simulation, holistically evaluating autonomy stack performance, and designing next-generation autonomy stacks. He has also previously conducted research in the fields of computer vision, natural language processing, and data science, frequently leveraging concepts from them in his current research.
In his spare time, Boris enjoys playing tennis, skiing, hiking, traveling, watching docudramas, and cooking.
