-========== Brief Bio ========== 
-Jakob Engel received his Bachelor degree in Computer Science in 2009 and his Master degree in December 2011 at the Technical University of Munich (Germany). He received the **SIEMENS Award** for the best Master'​s Thesis 2012 for his work on Autonomous Camera-Based Navigation of a Quadrocopter. 
-Since September 2012 he is a full-time PhD Student in the Computer Vision Group at the TU Munich, headed by [[cremers|Prof. Daniel Cremers]]. His main research interests are visual SLAM (monocular, stereo and RGB-D), 3D reconstruction and vision-based navigation of (Nano-)Quadrotors. He received the **EMVA Young Professional Award 2014** for his work on Semi-Dense Visual Odometry (LSD-SLAM). 
-Since July 2016, he is a full-time researcher at Oculus Research.

-  * **Direct Visual SLAM** (in particular with a monocular camera, but also using stereo and RGB-D cameras). This video shows LSD-SLAM: a novel direct, large-scale monocular SLAM technique we developed, published at ECCV '14 ([[research:​vslam:​lsdslam|more details & code here]]):

-  * **Camera-based navigation of Quadrocopters**,​ e.g. the Parrot AR.Drone: Check out this video demonstrating the result of my Master'​s Thesis ([[research:​quadcopter|more details here]]):

-We published the code as [[http://​www.ros.org/​wiki/​tum_ardrone|ROS node]], so you can try it out yourself (provided you have an AR.Drone 1.0 or 2.0). 
-  * **Nanocopter**:​ Visual navigation methods for Quadrocopter weighing less than 50g ([[research:​nanocopter|more details here]]). 
-========== Project Topics ========== 
-If you are interested in writing a **Master'​s Thesis** or a **HIWI position** in the area of camera-based navigation (SLAM, visual odometry, 3D reconstruction) and / or quadrocopter,​ you are welcome to contact me or come by my office. Note that I expect you to be well familiar with C++, have a decent mathematical understanding,​ some background (lectures / projects / seminars) in the area of computer vision, and capable of working self-organized. Please also read William Freeman'​s tips on [[http://​people.csail.mit.edu/​billf/​www/​papers/​doresearch.pdf|How to do research]]
