About me

Welcome to my website! My name is Stefan Haller and I was born in 1992 in Germany.

I am working as a computer scientist researcher at the Heidelberg Collaboratory for Image Processing of the Ruprecht-Karls-University Heidelberg and I am affiliated with the Visual Learning Lab Heidelberg. My main topics are optimization for machine learning, machine learning in general and computer vision.

Apart from that I am generally interested in computer science topics. I also like hacking and coding. I definitely like and support free and open source software. You might want to check out my GitHub profile, even if I’m not that active.

If you want to get in touch with me, just drop me an e-mail.
