About Me

I am currently a Ph.D.student at Institute of Human-Machine Communication, Technical University of Munich. I am supervised by Prof. Gerhard Rigoll. Before that, I received my Master's (2017) and Bachelor's (2014) degree in Electrical Engineering from Technical University of Munich. In 2016 I studied two month at the The University Centre in Svalbard (UNIS). In 2015 I spent one Semester in Trondheim, Norway at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU).

My research interests lie in computer vision, deep learning, and their applications. Specifically on tasks related to face-recognition and super-resolution.
