Ayça Takmaz

I am a PhD student in the field of computer vision and augmented reality, supervised by Prof. Bob Sumner and co-supervised by Prof. Siyu Tang in the Department of Computer Science (D-INFK) at ETH Zurich. I closely collaborate with Dr. Francis Engelmann. I previously worked at ETH Zurich as a computer vision research engineer in a joint augmented reality project between ETH Media Technology Center (MTC), ETH Game Technology Center (GTC), and Disney Research Studios (DRS). My research interests mainly lie in scene understanding, 3D reconstruction, unsupervised learning, affordance prediction, and human-object interactions for augmented reality applications.

In 2021, I obtained my Master's degree in Electrical Engineering and Information Technology at ETH Zurich with a focus on computer vision, machine learning, and signal processing. I completed several research projects at the ETH Computer Vision Lab (CVL) led by Prof. Luc Van Gool, as well as the Computer Vision and Graphics (CVG) Group led by Prof. Marc Pollefeys. During the course of my research projects and master's thesis, I had the great opportunity to collaborate with Dr. Danda Pani Paudel, Dr. Thomas Probst, Dr. Ajad Chhatkuli, and Dr. Martin R. Oswald.
