Hi! I am a PhD candidate at the chair of Visual Computing.

I work at the intersection of computer vision, computer graphics, and machine learning. My research interests are focused on the reconstruction of humans using novel sensor systems. Apart from theoretical research, I strive to apply my work to real-world scenarios, in particular medical applications.

I studied computer science at FAU Erlangen-Nürnberg and the IDSIA lab (Prof. Dr. Jürgen Schmidhuber) at USI in Lugano (Switzerland). My master thesis was supervised by Prof. Dr. Matthias Nießner at TU Munich.

Open Theses (Bachelor / Master)

I supervise bachelor and master theses for computer science students (and other related studies).
If you are interested you can always write a kind e-mail with some information about yourself and we will work together on finding available options for you.

Job Openings

Are you interested in doing research and gaining experience in the academic field?

We are offering part-time positions as a research assistant (HiWi) (w/ or w/o bachelor degree).

Research topics are related to:

  • (Rigid / non-rigid) 3D reconstruction
  • Pose and shape Estimation of parametric models, e.g. for full hands/faces/full bodies
  • Motion tracking
  • Sensor systems, e.g. Time-of-flight cameras, radar sensors, RGB cameras, …
  • Other related fields: Raytracing, Optimization, Deep Learning, Simulation, …

For further details, please write me an e-mail.
