About me

I am a Research Scientist and Manager at Google Zurich (Switzerland), where I lead an applied research team in Computer Vision and Machine Learning. I am also affiliated to the Faculty of Computer Science at TU Munich (Germany) as lecturer (Privatdozent).

An up-to-date list of publications is available at my Google Scholar. My research activity has been mostly focused on different aspects of 3D computer vision, such as 3D scene understanding, 3D object recognition, 3D reconstruction/modeling, SLAM. The fields of application of my research are mainly in robotics, augmented reality, autonomous driving and healthcare. I am currently particularly excited about unsupervised/self-supervised learning for visual data, deep implicit models and scene graphs for scene understanding.
