Christoph Rhemann

I am a Researcher at Microsoft (Redmond, US) where I am part of the interactive 3D technologies (I3D) group. My work straddles the boundary between research and technology transfer. My collaborations include Xbox and Surface. I am interested in applied computer vision applications with a focus on depth estimation and image/video segmentation.

Before moving to the US, I was a PostDoc researcher at Microsoft Research Cambridge (UK). Before joining Microsoft I did another PostDoc at Vienna University of Technology. I also finished my PhD studies in Vienna under the supervision of Margrit Gelautz (TU Vienna) and Carsten Rother (Microsoft Research).
