Research Interests

My research interests range from 3D computer vision, over machine learning, to computer graphics and augmented reality. With the aim of enabling tight and rich, yet natural and non-intrusive computer-human interaction, I advance 3D vision algorithms to yield high-quality dynamic reconstructions of our everyday environment from plain video input. The latest VR and AR devices offer incredible display capabilities; my 3D vision projects complement them to aid mutual human-computer interaction in our everyday life.
