In order to allow for the right amount of light to enter our eyes, our pupils need to constantly change their size. External light conditions, however, are not the only influence. Our current physiological and psychological condition also has an effect. When we are tired, our pupils tend to shrink. When we are intensely focused […]Read more
Since a couple of months, Pupil Labs is selling its new Pupil Invisible glasses. Being a lead R&D engineer at Pupil Labs, I am super excited about seeing our novel head-mounted eye tracker in the hands of a growing number of users, both in academia and industry. Employing an AI-powered approach to gaze estimation, Pupil […]Read more
I am happy to announce, that recently my latest computer vision paper was published at ETRA 2019, a major conference in the field of eye tracking. In this collaborative work which was performed at Pupil Labs with Moritz Kassner and Andreas Bulling, we extend on our recent results with respect to eye model fitting and […]Read more
The development of an organism from a fertilized egg encompasses intricate rearrangements of cells and tissues. Think of a paper boat! Starting from a plain sheet of paper, by repeated folding a complex 3D shape emerges which can function in ways the original piece of paper could not. Something very similar is taking place in […]Read more
Recently, together with Moritz Kassner and Andreas Bulling, I have published a paper at Pupil Labs, the company I currently work for. In this work, we present a novel method for fitting a 3D eye model to a set of eye images obtained by a near eye camera. Such cameras, which produce close-up images of […]Read more
We are currently finalizing the development of a novel method for measuring material properties in the developing Drosophila embryo. More details coming soon! Stay tuned!
How do complex organisms develop from fertilized egg cells? This, without doubt, is the question central to all of developmental biology. Much already is known about the underlying genetic machinery involved in determining whether a cell ends up e.g. as a muscle cell or rather as part of the nervous system. When observing the embryonic […]Read more
