Kai Cordes left the Institut für Informationsverabeitung.
Publications and research activities from the time after the departure are not listed here.

Kai Cordes studied Mathematics and Computer Science at the Leibniz University of Hannover. He received his Dipl.-Math. degree working on Texture Synthesis and Texture Segmentation. In August 2013, he finished his Phd thesis "Occlusion Handling in Scene Reconstruction from Video" at the Institut für Informationsverarbeitung (TNT). From 09/2013 till 01/2015, he worked as PostDoc at the TNT.
Since 02/2015, he is working as a development engineer for the VISCODA GmbH. His work is focused on the reconstruction of static geometry and moving objects from video.
