I am a PhD Student in computer science at the visual computing group in the University of Tübingen. I am working on my PhD within the scope of research projects in the cognitive systems research group at Reutlingen University. I work mainly on autonomous driving related projects. The focus of my work is on computer vision algorithms for human recognition and understanding. Main tasks include pedestrian detection, pose recognition, action recognition and human intention prediction. The approach of my work is strongly based on simulation data. Therefore I work with motion capture data (optical Vicon system and IMUs) and 3D human models (3D scanned or generated). Currently I generate simulation data via the Unity® game engine.
