Check out our latest research on weakly-supervised 3D shape completion.

I am a PhD student at the Max Planck Institute for Informatics supervised by Prof. Bernt Schiele interested in computer vision and deep learning. Previously, I completed my master degree at RWTH Aachen University and wrote my master thesis at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems supervised by Prof. Andreas Geiger . During my master degree, I also spent a semester abroad at Georgia Tech working with Prof. Irfan Essa . I also hold a bachelor degree from RWTH Aachen University for which I wrote my bachelor thesis in the Computer Vision Group supervised by Prof. Bastian Leibe .

Over the last few years, I worked for RS Computer , Fraunhofer FKIE , the Computer Vision Group and MATHCCES at RWTH Aachen University , Fyusion , MOBIS and Microsoft . I am still working as a freelance web developer.

On this blog you will find articles, reading notes and some projects — which you can also find on GitHub or ShortScience. Here's my CV, some mission statements, as well as LinkedIn, Xing, and Google Scholar profiles.

What I've been up to ...

In September, I was honored to receive the MINT-Award IT 2018, sponsored by ZF and audimax, for my master thesis on weakly-supervised shape completion. For CVPR 2019, however, I am working on a different topic: adversarial robustness and generalization of deep neural networks.18thOCTOBER2018
In the last few months, I finished my work on weakly-supervised 3D shape completion with a CVPR 2018 paper as well as a follow-up journal submission. This means that I will be visiting CVPR this year. Afterwards, I plan to focus on robustness of deep neural networks — for example: why do adversarial examples exist and how can we defend deep neural networks against them? To answer these questions, I will also be visiting MLSS 2018 later this summer.22thMAY2018
