Biography

I'm a fourth-year doctoral fellow in the Max Plank ETH Center for Learning Systems, a joint program between ETH Zurich and Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems. I am supervised by Prof. Otmar Hilliges, Prof. Andreas Geiger and Prof. Michael Black. I am working in the AIT lab at ETH Zurich.

My research interest lies in 3D deep generative models, with a goal to build learning-based approaches capable of generating photo-realistic simulations of human activity. The resulting data could be useful in the context of training methods for human-centric perception tasks.
