Biography and Research

I am a PhD student in the Advanced Interactive Technologies lab of the Institute for Intelligent Interactive Systems at ETH Zurich, supervised by Professor Otmar Hilliges and Thabo Beeler. I obtained my Master's degree in Data Science from ETH Zurich in 2020 and my Bachelor's degree in Computer Science from University of Zurich in 2017. My experiences include generative modeling of digital humans, neural rendering and gaze estimation.

I build controllable generative models of photorealistic digital human heads. I recently developed a 3D-aware generative face model trained on monocular images in a self-supervised fashion via differentiable rendering. Previously, I built semantically controllable generative models for eyes and faces. I currently work on a generative model for fully 3D-aware, animatable human heads. I am interested in implicit representations for 3D geometry and the disentanglement of latent spaces.

If you would like to share experiences, or bounce an idea, please get in touch.

Keywords: generative modeling; differentiable rendering; disentanglement; digital humans.
