You can find my CV including a publication list here [Last Update: March, 2013].
My Phd Thesis on 3D Paper Structure Analysis using Computer Vision was finished in April 2007.
I was lecturer of several fundamental and computer vision-specific courses like Introduction to Scientific Working, Pattern Recognition Seminar, Selected Topics of Computer Vision and Introduction to Programming until January, 2013. Resources concerning these lectures are made available on demand. For recent information to these lectures, please check the TUG-Online.
You can find a detailed summary of my main research topics (including CODE and EXAMPLES) at the VH research page. But in general, my main computer vision interest lies on complete scene understanding, i.e. given a single image, we want to explain the whole image, by simultaneously recognizing and localizing all category instances in an image and by identifying their accurate spatial extent, i.e. providing a pixel-level segmentation per recognized category instance. Obviously, such a goal involves many important computer vision steps like feature extraction and description, object category recognition and unsupervised segmentation and I aimed at contributing to all these fields in the last years.
