Hi, I am Tobias. Before joining the Visual Computing Lab as a PhD student I received degrees from the University of Passau (BSc Computer Science and BSc Mathematics) and TUM (MSc Computer Science). After my Bachelor's, I worked in Norway as a Software Engineer for a year, and during my Master's, I spent a term abroad at the University of New South Wales in Sydney. In the past, I have been conducting research in various Machine Learning areas, including Emotion Recognition from physiological signals, Transformer Architectures for Source Code, and Novel View Synthesis on Large Outdoor Scenes. In the future, I want to focus on 3D Computer Vision.

Research Interest

Dynamic 3D Reconstruction, Neural Rendering of Faces/Humans, Generative Modeling

We present Neural Parametric Head Models (NPHMs) for high fidelity representation of complete human heads. We utilize a hybrid representation for a person's canonical head geometry, which is deformed using a deformation field to model expressions. To train our model we captured a large dataset of high-end laser scans of 120 persons in 20 expressions each.
