Bachelor / Master Theses

My current research topic is the reconstruction (both 3D volume and 3D motion) of real fluid phenomena with very sparse input angles. Current topics for theses involve an experimental capture setup with Raspberry Pis, different tomography algorithms, numeric solvers and also non-linear lighting models.

If you're interested in a Bachelor's or Master's thesis regarding fluid capture and reconstruction, please contact me.

Here are two example topics:

 Capturing Real Fluid Phenomena (Fog Machine)

 Column-Action Methods in Image Reconstruction

 Modeling 3D Fluid Volumes Based on Appearance Transfer
