Profile picture I am a Computer Vision Expert at archilogic.com. There, I am in charge of novel AI applications such as automatic 3D model generation from floorplans and pointclouds, as well as automatic furnishing suggestions for interiors. In 2014, I completed my PhD at the Computer Vision Lab at ETH Zurich under the supervision of Prof. Luc Van Gool. Previously, I studied Computer Engineering at ENSIIE, France and received an MSc in Advanced Computing from Imperial College London. My main research focus in Computer Vision is Architecture Modelling, spanning accross a large number or related fields. I've worked on the 3D-COFORM and the VarCity projects.

I am also co-founder of Free Walk Switzerland (largest tour organization in Switzerland: 7 cities, 50+ guides, 250+ tours/month, rated #1 tour in Basel, Bern, Geneva, Lucerne and Zurich on TripAdvisor).

Finally, I was named a World Economic Forum Global Shaper. There, I focus on the future of jobs and education. I lead a project to offer high school students the chance to meet a diverse panel of high achievers to help them make better decisions for their studies and career choices.

Generally, I am interested in how people think and its implications in creativity, collaborative thinking and AI.
