Biography

I am a PHD student working with Professor Otmar Hilliges at ETH Zurich. I received my Diploma in Physics from the University of Heidelberg with a focus on image processing and unsupervised identification of biological cells. Before joining the Advanced Interactive Technologies Lab I worked on numerical and distributed simulations of stochastic systems within the D-BSSE at ETH Zurich.



Research Interests

My research interest is in the area of computer vision and optimization for augmented reality and robotic applications. I am currently working on the following projects:
