Research Interests

  • Rigid & Deformable 3D Reconstruction
  • Optimization
  • RGB-D Sensors


I am a PhD student at the Chair for Computer Aided Medical Procedures of TUM and Siemens AG under the supervision of PD Dr. Slobodan Ilic since March 2015. Before that I obtained an MSc degree in Computational Science and Engineering from TUM and a BSc in Computer Science from Jacobs University Bremen. My current research focuses on rigid and non-rigid 3D reconstruction with RGB-D sensors. In my free time I co-organize the Computer Vision and Medical Image Analysis Meetup with Fausto Milletari, and go rowing with the university team.


  • [03.2017] Our paper "KillingFusion: Non-rigid 3D Reconstruction without Correspondences" got accepted as a spotlight presentation at CVPR 2017.
  • [09.2016] We are going to demonstrate a 10 FPS version of the Siemens depth sensor used for the 3D-Printed RGB-D Object Dataset in SDF-2-SDF at ECCV 2016 (afternoon session on Thursday, 13. October).

Deformable Dataset

The single-stream RGB-D sequences with ground-truth canonical pose 3D models we acquired for our KillingFusion? paper are available here.

The 3D-Printed Dataset introduced in the SDF-2-SDF paper is available here.
It contains groundtruth CAD models and camera trajectories for 5 objects, each of which is scanned both with turntable and handheld motion. We provide synthetic, industrial- and Kinect-quality RGB-D sequences.
3D-Printed Dataset


Implicit-to-Implicit Registration for Rigid-Body Motion Estimation

Kenny This is a method for precise registration from range data, in which pairs of signed distance fields are aligned by means of minimization of their direct per-voxel difference. Some of the advantages over cloud registration techniques are the absence of correspondence search and the denser formulation, which lead to higher accuracy and a larger convergence basin.
It is used as the basis for SDF-2-SDF, an object reconstruction pipeline that combines frame-to-frame camera tracking and multiview pose optimization, and SDF-TAR, an extension to larger scenes and SLAM.
The project started with my master thesis (Unified Pipeline for 3D Reconstruction from RGB-D Images using Coloured Truncated Signed Distance Fields), supervised by Wadim Kehl. It was selected for presentation at the Young Researcher Forum at GCPR 2015. Later, I got a chance to present the underlying approach as an oral at the WiCV workshop at CVPR 2016 (poster).
