I am part of the group around Prof. Nils Thuerey. My current research topic is reconstructing both 3D volume and 3D motion of real fluid phenomena with only a single 2D input video. Previously, I was working on separating boundary conditions for liquids based on convex optimization methods.
Topics of Research: fluid simulation, fluid capture, fluid tracking, convex optimization, numeric solvers, neural networks
I am organizing the exercises for the lecture "Deep Learning and Numerical Simulations for Visual Effects" and I have been supervising Bachelor's and Master's Theses, see below.
