Reseach Interests

I am interested in representation, learning, and refinement of object poses for scene understanding.

As a part of my research I developed StilllebeDR, a light-weight, fast differentiable renderer.

Some results of 6D object pose refinement using StilllebeDR in abstract render-and-compare framework are shown here:

Deformable registration using StilllebeDR and shape-space model in render-and-compare framework are shown here:
