I joined the Data and Web Science Group in April 2017 as a Juniorprofessor. My research interests are Computer Vision and Image Processing. More specifically, I am interested in grouping problems such as

During my PhD with Thomas Brox at the University of Freiburg, I focused on the segmentation in volumetric bio-medical image data.

I am looking for a highly motivated PhD student.

  • Applications that do not include CV, transcripts, and a short (!) cover letter will likely be ignored.
  • We generally do not offer short internships (3 months or less).

Ongoing Research Projects

Video Segmentation from Multiple Representations using Lifted Multicuts - DFG Project KE 2264/1-1

DeToL - Deep Topology Learning - funded by the BMBF (Federal Ministry of Education and Research)
