I am a Machine Learning and Computer Vision researcher making machines understand and generate representations of humans in 2D and 3D. I joined Facebook Reality Labs in March 2019 to make my vision of better and easier interaction between humans and machines become a reality.
Before joining Facebook, I worked at a startup which was acquired by Amazon. I did my PhD at the Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience Tübingen and the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems.
We propose a new method to reconstruct a mesh-based avatar from RGB-D video taking albedo and lighting into account.
We propose a novel, end-to-end pipeline to reconstruct detailed animatable avatars from a single picture.
