Hi! My name is Sandro

align-left I’m a Master student at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology with a background in signal processing. I have past experience on computational cameras and displays, image quality assessment and motion artefact reduction in magnetic resonance images and deep learning.

Currently, I am focussing on more theoretical parts of machine learning while increasing my hands-on experience through semantic segmentation of lidar data.

In my spare time I organize events through Hack & Söhne and take photos. Follow me on github.

Awards

Prize for Best Visualization

Prize for Best Visualization

We won the prize for best visualization at the Munich RE Datathon 2018. The challenge was to estimate children’s height from point clouds. This would revolutionize the child growth monitoring in poor countries and would be a huge step towards eliminating global hunger. Our approach combined 2D and 3D data, using state of the art Computer Vision and point cloud processing.

Teaching and Workshops

Deep Learning Workshop

Deep Learning Workshop

A workshop I did through Hack & Söhne together with Maximilian Franz and Leander Kurscheidt. We wanted to make very low level concepts clear and not just do tensorflow.train().

TiTrAa Workshop

TiTrAa Workshop

After my bachelor thesis I was frustrated that the writing workflow is so hard to learn. That’s why I made a workshop about it. Why is it called TiTrAa? TiTrAa stands for ‘Tipps und Tricks zu Abschlussarbeit’ and is German for ‘thesis workflow hacks’.

I gave Linux Workshops at AKK Karlsruhe.

Mathematics Tutorials

Mathematics Tutorials

I gave math tutorials from 2014 to 2016. It is important to get feedback about your teaching methods which is why I wrote an app to monitor the quality of my tutorials.

Some other things I do and did

Open Codes Hackathon

Open Codes Hackathon

I was part of the organizer team and a speaker for the Open Codes Hackathon. The Open Codes Hackathon was the largest student-run hackathon in Germany with international 200 participants.

Machine Learning Karlsruhe

Machine Learning Karlsruhe

ML-KA hosts weekly paper discussions group meetings (PDG) about Machine Learning. The classic pdg is Wednesdays. We recently started a theory-PDG branch that focusses on theoretical aspects of Machine Learning.
