Previous PhD thesis defended 2002-2011
(2013) Thabo Beeler's PhD thesis targets on the acquisition of the geometry of the human faces at a very high precision under static and also dynamic conditions. Thabo Beeler has designed and build up the complete pipeline of a novel scanner hardware together with its image analysis software, with results which show a clear improvement over existing face scanning systems in terms of spatial and time resolution. His scheme is single-shot and extends to the temporal domain by using anchor frames, obtaining facial geometry at a very high quality. The work has resulted in a system being the first scanner that can handle facial hair up to a large extend, by proposing a coupled method for acquiring facial hair and skin. The thesis of Thabo Beeler has set new standards in the important field of face scanning technology. It has impacted not only the academic community but also the practice within industries. His work is internationally well recognized and the number and quality of the related publications is outstanding and hard to outperform.
When you are working on a PhD there seems no time to think about anything else, even what you might do after completing the final version of your thesis. For most of us a PhD is not the end but a means to an end. The end game in this respect is usually making a difference as an academic in a university environment.
