Working on various topics in the domain of Geometry and 3D Deep Learning, with a focus on Deep Shape Representation for Shape Analysis, Modeling, and Reconstruction. My goal is to utilize unsupervised or self-supervised deep learning methods to gain more insight into the composition and nature of geometric objects. I focus on the structural analysis of 3D objects as well as the extraction of relationships between parts they are composed of.

Currently, I am researching deep neural networks for 3D Shape Abstraction. Furthermore, I am supervising multiple thesis researching methods for 3D Shape Representation and Generation, Partial Symmetry Detection as well as 3D Structure and Relationship Detection.

Octree Transformer: Autoregressive 3D Shape Generation on Hierarchically Structured Sequences

Structural and Compositional Learning on 3D Data (CVPR Workshop 2023)

Autoregressive models have proven to be very powerful in NLP text generation tasks and lately have gained pop ularity for image generation as well. However, they have seen limited use for the synthesis of 3D shapes so far. This is mainly due to the lack of a straightforward way to linearize 3D data as well as to scaling problems with the length of the resulting sequences when describing complex shapes. In this work we address both of these problems. We use octrees as a compact hierarchical shape representation that can be sequentialized by traversal ordering. Moreover, we introduce an adaptive compression scheme, that significantly reduces sequence lengths and thus enables their effective generation with a transformer, while still allowing fully autoregressive sampling and parallel training. We demonstrate the performance of our model by performing superresolution and comparing against the state-of-the-art in shape generation.
