Currently, I'm a Phd student and research assistant at the Institute for Computer Graphics and Vision at Graz University of Technology. I'm supervised by Prof. Horst Bischof. Prior to that I studied Software Development and Business Management and received a Dipl.-Ing. degree (equivalent to M.Sc.) from Graz University of Technology in 2014.
