Daniel Cudeiro

Ph.D. Student (deceased)

Advisor: Michael Black

Daniel's research focused on understanding the link between semantics and vision. He believed that our intelligence and ability to perceive our surroundings is strongly influenced by language and meaning. He was also very interested in human emotions, facial expressions, sentiment analysis, multimodal learning, transfer learning and 3D modelling of human bodies and faces; amongst others.

I am interested in human object interaction learning, to start with human ground interaction leaning (walking/ running) and later on would like to extended it to more complex hand manipulated objects.

Joel Janai

Ph.D. Student

Advisor: Andreas Geiger

Perception is a fundamental part of intelligence since perception is necessary to acquire knowledge and knowledge is necessary to understand perception. Therefore computer vision is one of the most important aspects in the realization of intelligent systems. My interest of research lies in computer vision and the combination with machine learning which, to my mind, will enable the realization of intelligent systems. Currently, I am working on optical flow and how to incorporate high-level information to alleviate this ill-posed problem.

Ahmed Osman

Ph.D. Student

My work spans both the research aspect of creating the world most realistic human body models and the development of computationally efficient and scalable software that enables learning such models from large scale data sets. I completed an MSc in Statistics at Imperial College London, MSc in Artificial Intelligence at the Uni. of Manchester and BEng in Mechatronics and Robotics at the University of Liverpool.

Eric Price

Ph.D. Student

Advisor: Michael Black

I'm a second year PhD Student at the department of Perceiving Systems. I'm developing multi-aerial vehicle intelligence for practical research application with prototypes built here at the institute. My current work involves integrating detections from real time deep neural networks into cooperative multi vehicle sensor fusion.

Paul Soubiran

Ph.D. Student, University of Tuebingen

My research is based in preclinical imaging at the Werner Siemens Imaging Center, and I am focused on novel molecular imaging techniques. My research involves awake and unrestrained rodents and measurements of a more truthful neurophysiological response (to drugs, stimuli, treatments, etc…). I am interested in building an model for tracking and capturing the most commonly used research rodents in preclinical applications.

Omid Taheri

Ph.D. Student

I am interested in modeling and capturing motions with a focus on haptic motion capturing. More specifically, my research is focused on implementing hands and body interaction(touch and pressure)as well as eyes motion(Gaze) into motion capturing systems. I also have a great interest in applying physics engine to avatars and body models.
