History
I am a researcher/PhD candidate at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology.
Prior to joining Carsten Dachsbacher's newly-founded group in Karlsruhe, I received my diploma in computer science (2010) from the University of Stuttgart, specializing in computer graphics at the VIS/VISUS; I also worked as a student research assistant there (2007-2010). I'm currently working (together with ) on this project: Lightrig.
