I am an associate professor at the Department of Informatics at Vienna University of Technology, Austria. I obtained my PhD degree in Telematics from Graz University of Technology, Austria, in 1997. Afterwards, I spent 2 years as a visiting scholar at the EE Department of Stanford University, USA, working in the field of radar remote sensing. At Vienna University of Technology, I built up a research group on Image and Video Analysis & Synthesis (www.ims.tuwien.ac.at/IVAS), with a focus on 3D reconstruction and algorithms for stereo analysis, image matting, motion analysis and related applications. I was director of the Doctoral College on Computational Perception at Vienna University of Technology from 2010 to 2013, and vice chair of IEEE Austria Section from 2012 to 2014. I act as a reviewer for major journals, including IEEE PAMI, IEEE TCSVT and IEEE TIP, and serve as a project evaluator for the European Union and several national research funding agencies. My current research interests include autonomous driving applications and motion studies in the field of robotics.
