Research Topic(s): Performance Capture

Short Bio

I received Bachelor’s degree at Moscow State Technical University (BMSTU) and Master’s degree at Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL). At the same time I have gained industrial experience while interning at Google, Microsoft and Sony Research. I my doctoral studies I am focusing on the hand tracking problem. My goal is to combine machine learning and computer vision techniques to accurately estimate the pose of user’s hands from depth sensor data in real time.
