I received PhD degree (German: Dr.-Ing.) from Leibniz University of Hannover from Institute for Information Processing in 2016, where I worked under supervision of Prof. Bodo Rosenhahn. During my PhD studies, I visited Disney Research Pittsburgh, working with Dr. Sung Ju Hwang and Dr. Leonid Sigal. I also interned at Microsoft Research, Cambridge during my final year. Before that, I obtained Master degree ("Специалист") from Faculty of Applied Mathematics and Cybernetics of Lomonosov Moscow State University, Russia. During my PhD studies I mostly focused on free hand pose estimation from a single depth frame. Apart from that, I worked on general pose estimation and object detection and several other research projects.
