Research Interests

Currently, I'm working on Deep Learning methods for Object Detection. More specifially, I try to improve Object Detectors by means of freely available meta/environmental data. Although perception can work without context, it is often leveraged by additional domain knowledge (e.g. on UAVs).

27th of April '20:  There is a vacant student research asssistant (HiWi, Wissenschaftliche Hilfskraft) or intern position. If you are interested in Deep Learning methods or applying Deep Learning on UAVs , contact me. Possible tasks include

  • Developing a domain aware ObJect Detector
  • Reviewing literature regarding Deep Learning methods in general or Object Detection in particular
  • Implementing an Object Detector on one of our UAVs
  • ...

The concrete position and tasks are subject to discussion with interested students.
