About me

I completed my PhD degree in 2015 in the Computer Graphics and Geometry Laboratory (LGG) at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL) under the supervision of Prof. Mark Pauly. I received a MSc degree in Computer Science from EPFL in 2009 and completed my master thesis at the Imaging Group of Mitsubishi Electric Research Laboratories (MERL) where I developed computer vision algorithms for car geolocalization in urban areas. After my graduation and before starting a PhD in 2010, I joined e-on Software as an R&D software engineer where I developed robust geometry processing algorithms and worked on physical simulations of natural phenomena.

In 2012, based on my research, I co-founded faceshift AG, an EPFL spin-off that brings high-quality markerless facial motion capture to the consumer market, which was then acquired in 2015 by Apple Inc. At Apple I developed and productized the realtime face tracking algorithm powering the iPhone X Animojis.

My research interests include computer graphics, computer vision and machine learning. If you like, you can follow my work on GoogleScholar. Beside my passion for science, I like to play piano and guitar, and enjoy composing music (SoundCloud).
