Peter Vincent Gehler
Research Group Leader
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.
