I am a professor of computer science heading the Autonomous Vision Group (AVG). My group is part of the University of Tübingen and the MPI for Intelligent Systems located in Tübingen, Germany at the heart of CyberValley. I am deputy head of the department of computer science at the University of Tübingen and I am coordinating the ELLIS PhD program.
I am interested in 3D scene understanding, reconstruction, motion estimation, generative modeling and sensori-motor control in the context of autonomous systems. My goal is to make artificial intelligent systems such as self-driving cars or household robots more autonomous, efficient, robust and safe.
On this website I maintain a list of news, publications and people I work with as well as links to older projects. More information can be found here:
