About Me

Hi there! I'm Manuel, a PhD candidate at the Visual Computing Group of Matthias Nießner at the Universität München (TUM), Germany. My work focuses on 3D Scene Understanding and Reconstruction. I'm also interested in Geometric Deep Learning, Generative Models for 3D Data and Shape Analysis.

Before the joining the group, I did my Master's Thesis at the same group about the topic Learning between Synthetic and Real Data. This thesis concludes the Informatics: Games Engineering program (M.Sc) with the specializations of Computer Graphics and Animation and Hardware-aware Programming.

In 2015, I received my Bachelor's degree (B.Sc) Informatics: Games Engineering from the Universität München (TUM). From August 2016 until June 2017, I took part in the Erasmus mobility program, in which I was studying at Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden.

Between April and June 2019 I visited the Geometric Computation Group of Leonidas Guibas at Stanford University, USA.
