I am a postdoc in the Computer Vision and Machine Learning Group at the Institute of Science and Technology (IST) Austria. My research focuses on building machines that understand the visual world with minimal supervision. This requires endowing deep learning methods with strong, physically-motivated priors about the structure of the world, such as 3D geometry and decomposition into objects. My work therefore lies at the intersection of machine learning, computer vision, and computer graphics.

Profile

I completed a BA in Mathematics at the University of Cambridge in 2009, followed by an MSc in Informatics at the University of Edinburgh in 2010. I then worked at Blackford Analysis for four years, on research and development for medical imaging applications. I completed my PhD in 2018 at the University of Edinburgh in the CALVIN group supervised by Vittorio Ferrari. I am currently a postdoc at IST Austria in the group of Christoph Lampert.
