Brief Bio

Nikolaus Mayer received his Bachelor's degree in Computer Science in 2011 and his Master's degree in Applied Computer Science in 2014 at the University of Freiburg, Germany. Each time he was honored as best of the year.


For his Master's thesis work he was awarded the 2014 VDI-Förderpreis (sponsorship award of the Association of German Engineers).


In March 2014 he joined the Computer Vision Group in Freiburg under Prof. Thomas Brox as a full-time PhD student.
