I am fascinated by the immense progress and application potential of computer vision and robotics research. My motivation is to push the state-of-the-art by developing novel approaches and applying these methods to solve real-world problems. For example, our approach to autonomous quadrocopter flight enables a low-cost quadrocopter to follow its trajectory using a camera as its main sensor while taking a series of images. Our 3D reconstruction algorithm allows to scan persons in 3D and print the acquired model as a small figure. As I see a large potential for commercial applications of such methods, I recently co-founded the university spin-off FabliTec to bring this technology to market.

I am currently working in the following research areas:

RGB-D Vision including visual odometry, SLAM, dense 3D reconstruction, mapping, localization, pose tracking and benchmarking
Micro Aerial Vehicles (MAVs), including camera-based localization, dense mapping, data fusion, safe navigation and, when all of this works, flying manipulation
