About

I am a PhD student at Max-Planck-Institut Informatik and MMCI Saarland University. My supervisors are Tobias Ritschel and Hans-Peter Seidel.

My main research topic is efficient physically-based rendering, with a particular focus on light transport in participating media. I'm also curious about material appearance modelling, predictive rendering, filtering and other areas of image processing, and physics (not neccessarily in that order).

See my CV for more details.
