Welcome!

I am a software engineer at Google Switzerland in Zurich.

Prior I was a postdoctoral researcher in the Calvin group of the Computer Vision Laboratory of ETH Zurich

I obtained both my PhD and my diploma degree from RWTH Aachen University where I have been leading the image processing and understanding efforts in the Human Language Technology and Pattern Recognition Group since 2005.

My personal research interests include machine learning and pattern recognition in computer vision, e.g. object detection and recognition, content-based image retrieval, but also data mining, and a little bit of everything.
