My research is devoted to the design of better algorithms for solving computer vision problems as well as their applications in related fields such as computer graphics, medical image analysis and robotics. I have been focusing on the advances of graphical models and the development of graph-based approaches for fundamental computer vision problems, such as segmentation, tracking, shape matching and 3D model inference.
I am interested in recovering physical properties of general scenes from images. My current research focuses on reconstructing dense 3-d surface geometry, appearance and motion of dynamic scenes from multi-view image sequences. I believe accurate estimation of these properties will help understand the physical world.
My research is related to matching non-rigid articulated objects with emphasis on 3D models of the human body.
I coordinate our department's research trials. We collect data on human body shape and pose. This includes 3D and 4D body scans, face scans, anthropometric measurements, Motion Capture, and further (experimental) technologies. I recruit participants, schedule, manage appointments, create protocols of poses and movements and gain data according to our scientists' needs. Also, I process the data and take care of data security. Besides that, I am responsible for organising lab tours for visitors of our department.
Designing, draping, and animating virtual clothing on realistic body shapes in motion. Human subjects coordination. Human 3D, 4D and motion capture.
My research focuses on human body modeling and 3D mesh registration. In particular, I work on the development of registration algorithms that exploit both 3D shape and texture information. I am also interested in segmentation and registration of medical (namely, dermatologic) images.
I'm the department's friendly neighbourhood Sysadmin. 10000ft tall and made of string.
My interests are non-rigid registration of images and video, Bayesian estimation, and their robotic and biomedical applications.
I am interested in efficient inference methods for computer vision. What makes models stand out to allow fast inference and how push the computational burden towards training time? In particular, I am working on human pose estimation from single images, a challenging structured prediction problem.
I'm working at the intersection of machine learning and computer vision, developing efficient non-parametric models of human pose, motion, appearance, and segmentation. I'm especially interested in exploiting the additional information provided by the dynamic context present in temporal data sources.
My work focuses on improving human body shape and pose estimation from different sensor based systems. I help develop tools and methods for capturing and processing data from depth/ToF sensors and mocap-like systems. I am also involved in developing tools to implement research projects into existing computer graphics and animation pipelines.
My research focuses on the computational analysis of video sequences: In what ways can the temporal dimension of videos be used by a computer to better understand the structure of a scene? And what can we learn from dynamic stimuli processing in the human visual system to make our algorithms more robust?
My research interest focuses on the use of probabilistic methods in the modeling and representation of shapes and images, and the analysis of biomedical models.
I am interested in modeling nonrigid objects. The geometric relations between a camera and the rigid world are well-known in Multiview Geometry, whereas little is understood about nonrigid objects. Nonrigid geometric concepts can have a huge impact in computer vision in terms of video understanding and in computer graphics in terms of rendering dynamic objects. In particular, I worked on nonrigid structure from motion, representation of nonrigid structures, and 3D human pose estimation.
I work on predicting a person's shape and measurements from scan and image data. I specialize in segmentation, evaluation and alignment.
During my studies in Biology I worked on the relationship between body shape and attractiveness perception. In our department I am responsible for coordinating research trials to collect data on human body shape and pose including 3D body scans and anthropometric measurements. The overall aim is to generate data for the body model as well as other research or art projects.
I am a research group leader at the Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience and the Max Planck Instiute for Intelligent Systems in Tübingen. Before, I was postdoctoral researcher at ETH Zurich, temporary Professor at TU Darmstadt, and Junior Research Group Leader at the MPI for Informatik. I did my PhD studies in the Empirical Inference group at the MPI for Biological Cybernetics. My main research focus lies on visual scene understanding. I want to enable computers to reason about the physical world around us. This requires models that can infer about the semantic, as well as the physical properties of visual data. I believe that both problems should be addressed jointly. I have broad interest in computer vision and machine learning topics with a focus on statistical models and inference techniques. Applications range from material and reflectance separation, to detection and pose estimation.
My research focused on how intelligent systems can understand a visual world that is constantly changing. My main interest was how to recover fundamental scene properties (i.e. intrinsic images) registered in the pixel grid of the video sequences, such as albedo, shading, optical flow, surface boundaries, and depth.
