I am a research scientist at the Perceiving Systems department at the Max Planck Institute for Intellifent Systems, directed by Michael Black. During my PhD at the TNT lab at the Leibniz University of Hannover I was lucky enough to visit and work with people of many stimulating computer vision and computer graphics labs at MPI-Informatik, UofT and Microsoft Research, Cambridge.
I am interested in computer vision and machine learning with a special emphasis on the annalysis and estimation of human shape and pose from images.
