I am a visual computing engineer and researcher with over 10 years of experience, currently employed as a software engineer at CD-adapco / Siemens. My professional interests include
- Real time rendering and visualization
- 3D reconstruction
- Biomedical imaging
- Geometry processing
- 3D scene understanding and segmentation
- Interactive ray tracing and global illumination
- GPU programming using OpenGL and Cuda
- Ultrasound simulation
- Convex optimization
- Machine learning
In 2004, I have received a degree of Dipl.-Ing. from the Vienna University of Technology, with a thesis about volume rendering on alternative (non-cartesian) lattices, working with Prof. Eduard Gröller and Markus Hadwiger. In 2010, I have received a Ph.D. from the same university under the supervision of Prof. Werner Purgathofer and Michael Wimmer, on the topic of visibility computations for real-time rendering.
After graduation, I worked short-term as a visiting researcher at The University of Tokyo in the group of Prof. Takeo Igarashi (with a JSPS Post-Doctoral Fellowship). From 2012-2016 I have been employed in Zurich, first at the University of Zurich under Prof. Renato Pajarola (from 2012-2014, with a Marie-Curie Fellowship), working on point-based reconstruction and scene understanding of indoor environments. From Oct. 2014 - April. 2017, I was employed as a postdoctoral researcher in the CAiM (Computer-assisted Applications in Medicine) group of the Computer Vision Laboratory at ETH Zurich under Prof. Orcun Goksel.
I have co-authored technical papers and have held courses at conferences like ACM Siggraph and Siggraph Asia, Eurographics, EGSR, ISMAR, and MICCAI, and have co-authored articles in journals like Transactions on Graphics and Computer Graphics Forum.
