William Theisen

PhD Student - University of Notre Dame


A huge soccer fan who grew up in a town with two stop-lights, I am now a second year PhD student in the Computer Vision Research Lab at the University of Notre Dame. I am advised by Dr. Walter Scheirer and also work very closely with Dr. Tim Weninger. My current area of research is political memes (no that's not a joke). In addition to being a "dank memer" I also enjoy playing ultimate and working in my garden!
