Peter Vincent Gehler

Professor

I am a research group leader at the Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience and the Max Planck Instiute for Intelligent Systems in Tübingen. Before, I was postdoctoral researcher at ETH Zurich, temporary Professor at TU Darmstadt, and Junior Research Group Leader at the MPI for Informatik. I did my PhD studies in the Empirical Inference group at the MPI for Biological Cybernetics. My main research focus lies on visual scene understanding. I want to enable computers to reason about the physical world around us. This requires models that can infer about the semantic, as well as the physical properties of visual data. I believe that both problems should be addressed jointly. I have broad interest in computer vision and machine learning topics with a focus on statistical models and inference techniques. Applications range from material and reflectance separation, to detection and pose estimation.

My research concerns learning models of perception and production of non-verbal communicative behavior. Such models can be used to create richer human-robot and human-avatar interaction, for medical diagnosis systems, and for contextual synthesis of different kinds of human behaviors, e.g., guiding synthesis of hand motion from body motion.

One of the requirements for enabling machines to perceive and interact in a human environment is to accurately perceive humans and their activities. My research is related to different aspects of movement perception and modeling. Since completing my PhD I'm focusing in human hand modeling, detection and pose estimation.

My current research focuses on representing the appearance of people in images and video sequences. I am particularly interested in 2D and 3D models that capture the variability in shape of articulated and deformable objects like the human body. Previous work focused on color image reproduction, multispectral color imaging, readability of colored text.
