My research focuses on recreating and understanding 3D environments and how humanoid actors can interact with them. I first started working on fusing data from RGB-D sensors into complete scene representations in a real-time setting. More specifically, I also evaluated how these methods can be used in medical environments. For my Master's Thesis at the Technical University of Munich, I worked on improving the quality of those 3D scans using Deep Convolutional Autoencoders. I received my MSc in Informatics in the summer of 2019 at TUM and before that, my BSc in Informatics and Multimedia at the University of Augsburg.

Hi! I'm Pablo. My research interests lie on tracking and reconstruction of non-rigidly deforming objects in dynamic environments in a self-supervised manner. I received my Master's Degree in Mechanical Engineering at TU Munich in 2019, as well as a Master's Degree in Automation and Electronics at TU Madrid, as part of a Double Degree Program.
