PhD student in the Computer Vision and Geometry group at ETH Zurich.

I joined the group in February 2020, and am supervised by Prof. Marc Pollefeys. My research interests lie in the interplay between Computer Vision, 3D Geometry, and Deep Learning.

I was previously a research intern at Magic Leap in San Francisco. I obtained a Master’s degree in Robotics at ETH Zurich, during which I conducted research at ASL on visual localization and uncertainty estimation. Before this, I spent time at Traverse.ai, NUS, and EPFL.

News

07/2020: I just released hloc, a new toolbox for visual localization and structure-from-motion with SuperGlue and other modern approaches.
06/2020: SuperGlue won 3 CVPR 2020 competitions: local features for visual localization, visual localization for handheld devices, and the image matching challenge. As a result, I gave 4 talks at various CVPR 2020 workshops, with recordings publicly available.
04/2020: My Master's thesis SuperGlue, conducted at Magic Leap, got accepted to CVPR 2020 for oral presentation! The code is now publicly available.
02/2020: I joined Prof. Marc Pollefeys’ group as a PhD student.
10/2019: Our Fishyscapes Benchmark paper was presented as an oral at the ICCV 2019 workshop on Autonomous Driving. The benchmark is up and running at fishyscapes.com.
06/2019: Our Hierarchical Localization paper won the Visual Localization Challenge at the CVPR 2019 workshop on Long-Term Visual Localization. The code is available on GitHub.
04/2019: I started my 6-month Master’s thesis with Tomasz Malisiewicz at Magic Leap in Sunnyvale, California.
04/2019: New preprint on uncertainty estimation: The Fishyscapes Benchmark: Measuring Blind Spots in Semantic Segmentation.
04/2019: My second paper From Coarse to Fine: Robust Hierarchical Localization at Large Scale got accepted to CVPR 2019.
09/2018: My first paper Leveraging Deep Visual Descriptors for Hierarchical Efficient Localization got accepted to CoRL 2018.
06/2018: I started a 6-month internship at Magic Leap, Zurich.
