I'm a final-year PhD student in Computer Vision and Machine Learning, advised by Bastian Leibe in the Computer Vision Group of RWTH Aachen University in Germany.

My research focus is robust and efficient 3D human understanding, especially with robotics application scenarios in mind. This work has been funded in part from a scholarship of the Bosch Research Foundation. My methods have won 3D human pose estimation competitions at ECCV 2018 and 2020 and I have received Outstanding Reviewer Awards at CVPR 2021 and 2022. Among others, I am excited about future research on holistic human+scene understanding, as well as uncertainty-aware semi- and self-supervised learning for human-related tasks.

As for my past, I received my B.Sc. from the Budapest University of Technology and Economics in my home country of Hungary, with a thesis on machine learning approaches for medical diagnosis classification. During my M.Sc. studies at RWTH Aachen University, I initially worked on medical image processing with Prof. Thomas M. Deserno, then joined Prof. Bastian Leibe's computer vision group to write my master thesis on visual crowd counting and pedestrian flow analysis. I am currently a PhD student in the same group.
