Since November 2017, I'm Research Associate in the Visual Learning Lab, Heidelberg University. This website is not maintained anymore.


2017-04-26: The DSAC code (CVPR 17) is now publicly available, see the project page.
2016-09-08: The code associated with our CVPR 16 paper is now publicly available, see the project page.
2015-08-12: An improved version of our ECCV 14 occlusion data set is part of the ICCV 15 pose estimation challenge. Our articulated object data set is also part of this challenge.
