Welcome to my web page!I am a professor of Graphics, Capture and Massively Parallel Computing in the Department of Computer Science at TU Darmstadt. My main research interests are the boundary (well - or intersection) of computer graphics and computer vision as well as massively parallel computing (e.g., on modern GPUs). My group and I are part of the visual computing team and the Graduate School of Excellence Computational Engineering at TU Darmstadt.
On this web page, you can find a collection of information me, my group, projects we do (often dated), publications, published source code and various other information. I'll try to keep it up to date (with varying success). The list of publications should, however, always be current. But it won't hurt to also check my Google Scholar profile. Additional noteworthy news is also available on my group's Facebook page.
FSSR - Floating Scale Surface Reconstruction
Our SIGGRAPH 2014 paper on surface reconstruction using scale-enabled point samples is now available online. Check it out (and visit Simon's prefentation at SIGGRAPH in Vanouver). All details and the source code of the project are available at the project web page.
Image-Based Rendering in the Gradient DomainCheck out this SIGGRAPH Asia 2013 paper from my group (Fabian Langguth and myself), written in collaboration with Johannes Kopf and Rick Szeliski (Microsoft Research) and Daniel Scharstein (Middlebury College). It provides a completely new approach to image-based rendering and handles scenes with reflective surfaces automatically. All details are available in the paper and the supplemental material at the project web page.
"Thou shalt make thee an image"
This is the title of the report by Rembert Unterstell on the work of my Emmy Noether group that was published in the magazine "german research" (in German: "forschung") of the German Science Foundation (DFG). A PDF version of the article (also available in German) is available here for download. A PDF version of the complete magazine is available on the DFG web pages.
Open PositionsI currently have some open positions for excellent Ph.D. students and postdocs in my group. Topics of interest include in particular image-based modeling and rendering, multi-view stereo, geometry processing, perception.
Looking for Students!
I am constantly offering topics for bachelor, masters, and diploma theses. Please contact me or one of the members of my group for further details if you are interested in any of these. Furthermore, I am looking for students interested in a longer-term job as research assistans ("wissenschaftliche Hilfskraft"). Note that these positions are only available to currently enrolled students in Darmstadt.
