My research is focused on computer vision, especially on the analysis of video data. I'm currently working on "Visual Analytics of Video Data", a project which is embeded in the DFG Priority Programme "Scalable Visual Analytics: Interactive Visual Analysis Systems of Complex Information Spaces" (SPP 1335).
