About

I perform research in computer vision with a focus on 3D scene reconstruction (especially, stereo analysis), video object segmentation, image matting and motion estimation. Current research interests concentrate on the application fields of assisted/autonomous driving and motion studies for human-robot interaction.

In collaboration with Microsoft Research Cambridge, our group has set up and maintains the alphamatting benchmark (www.alphamatting.com) for evaluation of image matting algorithms.

Our research activities led to the foundation of the spin-off company emotion3D in 2010.
