Brief Bio

I work at Google Zürich as a researcher in the field of computer vision. I previously worked on improving search quality at Google. I did my postdoc in the REVES team at INRIA Sophia Antipolis (France) under the supervision of George Drettakis, cooperating with Fredo Durand (MIT) and Ravi Ramamoorthi (UC Berkley) on novel importance sampling techniques for bi-directional path tracing. I graduated my PhD under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Philipp Slusallek in Saarbrücken (Germany), working on real-time ray tracing and global illumination for commodity hardware.
