Institute of Mathematics of the Romanian Academy

I am a Research Scientist at Google Research and PhD student advised by Cristian Sminchisescu.

My current interests lie in building algorithms that perceive people in 3d from visual data.

Before starting my PhD, I received an IMPRS-CS scholarship and fellowship from the Max Planck Institute for Informatics for the duration of my MSc. My thesis there was supervised by Bernt Schiele.
