My research focuses on computing and understanding motion in the world from video. In generic scenes I study optical flow (the 2D image motion) and how it relates to physical properties of the world including 3D shape, material, illumination, and motion. I also develop new methods to capture natural, complex, human and animal motion for applications in computer vision, animation, and neuroscience.

I am interested in computer vision and machine learning with a focus on 3D scene understanding, parsing and reconstruction. During my Ph.D. I have developed probabilistic models for 3D traffic scene understanding from movable platforms.

Aamir Ahmad

Research Scientist

My main research interests lie in Bayesian sensor fusion and optimization-based state estimation. The core application focus of my research is vision-based perception in Robotics. I have worked with several ground robots in the recent past. Currently, I am focusing on aerial robots and active perception in multiple aerial vehicle systems.

I work with computer vision researchers to coordinate, schedule and run human subjects trials involving body shape and motion analysis at the Perceiving Systems Department. To collect data we use several computer vision technologies, including our unique 3D and 4D body scanners and our new 4D face scanner.

Andrea Keller

Project Coordinator

I coordinate our department's research trials. We collect data on human body shape and pose. This includes 3D and 4D body scans, face scans, anthropometric measurements, Motion Capture, and further (experimental) technologies. I recruit participants, schedule, manage appointments, create protocols of poses and movements and gain data according to our scientists' needs. Also, I process the data and take care of data security. Besides that, I am responsible for organising lab tours for visitors of our department.

Naureen Mahmood

Research Engineer

My work focuses on improving human body shape and pose estimation from different sensor based systems. I help develop tools and methods for capturing and processing data from depth/ToF sensors and mocap-like systems. I am also involved in developing tools to implement research projects into existing computer graphics and animation pipelines.

Research Scientist

Are there people out there? How do they move? What is their body shape? What are they wearing? For machines to interact with humans and the physical world, we need to train them to answer these questions. My research is focused on combining ideas from computer vision and machine learning to enable machines to perceive humans. During my Ph.D. I worked mostly on geometric modelling and articulated tracking from images.

Alejandra Quiros-Ramirez

Postdoctoral Researcher

I am interested in understanding how we perceive human body shape and pose. Furthermore, I am interested in studying how individual factors (such as culture) affect our perception of our own and other people's bodies. On the side from research, I enjoy web technologies! I am currently supporting the creation of websites for scientific data acquisition and dissemination related to 3D body shape, as well as web development for scientific experiments and perceptual studies.

My research interests are in motion estimation and scene understanding. In particular I'm interested in exploring and modeling how the semantics and the motion of the scene are related.

Dimitris Tzionas

Postdoctoral Researcher

For my PhD I worked with Juergen Gall on Hand-Object Interaction. In particular we focused on capturing the motion of hands interacting with each other and/or with a rigid or an articulated object. We further studied the case of acquiring missing knowledge about the manipulated object, i.e. its shape or its kinematic model.
