MSc. Student at Technische Universität München

Technical University Munich


I am currently working towards an MSc in Computer Science at the Technische Universität München primarily focusing on Computer Vision & Graphics, Machine Learning, and Simulation areas. My current research interests are Rendering, Physics-based Simulation and 3D Scanning.

I am also a big fan of E-learning which I use to continuously build upon my areas of interest or learn about new topics, especially in Mathematics and Physics. In my free time, I enjoy developing various software/tools as side projects, tinker with Linux systems and contribute to Open Source Projects.

As blog posts, I will also be sharing my opinions about online courses, books, Kaggle challenges, Open Source Projects and overall anything that I find interesting.
