Tobias Tiecke

Communications Systems Scientist

I am a communications systems scientist in the Facebook Connectivity Lab. My research interests range from novel laser communication technologies to global scale computer vision analysis of satellite imagery to study the world’s population distribution. Prior to joining Facebook, I worked as a postdoctoral researcher at Harvard University on quantum optics and quantum communication. Before that I did my PhD at the University of Amsterdam in studying the properties of quantum matter.

Interests

Connectivity, Applied Machine Learning and Computer Vision
