My name is Robert Maier and I am a Research Assistant and Doctorate Candidate at the Chair for Computer Vision and Artificial Intelligence at the Technical University of Munich, headed by Prof. Dr. Daniel Cremers.
My research interests include (real-time) RGB-D based 3D Reconstruction, Visual SLAM, Visual Odometry, Shape-from-Shading and Bundle Adjustment techniques. Please visit my publication page to find out more about my research.
I have joined the Computer Vision Group at TUM in May 2014 as a research assistant and doctorate candidate. Within the scope of my PhD activities, I spent several months as a Computer Vision Research Intern at Oculus Research (Redmond, WA, USA) and NVIDIA Research (Santa Clara, CA, USA). From 2013 to 2014 I worked as a Computer Vision Engineer for medical imaging and RGB-D based 3D reconstruction at ImFusion (Munich). I have received my Bachelor’s degree (2010) and my Master’s degree (2013, with distinction) in Computer Science from the Technical University of Munich (Germany). During my Master’s studies, I spent an exchange semester at UPC Barcelona (Spain) in 2011/2012, before I worked as a Computer Vision Research Intern for RGB-D based 3D reconstruction at Siemens Corporate Research in Princeton, NJ (USA) in 2012/2013. Moreover, I have a Computer Science Expert degree and many years experience of working as a Software Engineer. Please have a look at my CV for more information.
