Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems


I am a PhD student at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems where I am advised by Prof. Michael Black. My research lies at the intersection of machine-learning, computer vision and computer graphics. Specifically, I am interested in physics-informed reconstruction of 3D humans, 3D human body modelling with limited supervision and 3D human-scene interaction. In the past, I have also worked on synthetic data for applications like object detection and human pose estimation. Prior to my doctoral studies, I earned my Masters from the Robotics Institute, Carnegie Mellon University, working with Prof. Kris Kitani. Please visit my website here for more information.
