I'm a postdoctoral researcher in the Team of Prof. Horst Bischof. Very roughly, my research interest is in machine learning for computer vision :-). Find more details, including links to projects and publications below.

|Human Shape Estimation|
The goal of this work is to develop methods to reconstruct the shape of a person
given a single color image.
Such methods provide the basis for applications like human computer interaction, shape analysis or fitting of, e.g., clothes or medical devices.
The figure shows depth image estimates for color images of persons, which can be a first step towards 3D reconstruction.
|Hand Pose Estimation|
The goal of this work is to develop methods to estimate the hand pose, i.e., the joint positions,
given an image of the hand.
Such methods provide the basis for applications like human computer interaction, activity analysis, and sign language recognition. One of our implementations, e.g., found the way into a product of a partner company, which used the estimated hand poses for interaction with computer games.

The goal of this work was to develop methods to segment petroglyphs pecked into the rocks of
Valcamonica (northern Italy) thousands of years ago.
The main challenge stemmed from the weathering, which the rocks have undergone in the meantime.
