About me

I graduated with a PhD degree from the Computer Graphics and Geometry Laboratory (LGG) at Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) under the supervision of Prof. Mark Pauly. My research interests are human performance capture and reconstruction, and in general loving to work at the intersection of computer vision and graphics.

Now I'm at Oculus.
