Associate Staff, Associate Staff


My interests are in Computer Vision, Computer Graphics & Machine Learning. More specifically:

  • Statistical 3D models, especially 3D face models
  • Metrically accurate 3D face avatars from 2D images and videos
  • Combining model-based, classical computer vision with deep learning approaches.

I also have a keen interest in Modern C++ (C++14/17 and beyond).

I'm the Founder of 4dface Ltd (, a small start-up specialising in 3D face models and realistic 3D face avatars for professional applications. I am also a Visiting Academic Researcher at the Centre for Vision, Speech and Signal Processing of the University of Surrey, UK, in the group of Prof. Josef Kittler.


  • PhD in Computer Vision, University of Surrey, UK, 2017
  • MSc in Computer Science, University of Basel, Switzerland, 2012
