Tom Wehrbein studied computer science at Leibniz University Hannover. In 2017, he was awarded the "Preis des Präsidiums" for his excellent academic achievements. For his bachelor's thesis "Representation of Human Motion using Neural Networks" he received the "KI Talente 2019" award. His master's thesis "Deep Learning Based Probabilistic 3D Human Pose Estimation" dealt with generating multiple plausible 3D poses consistent with an image. He received his master's degree in November 2020.
Since December 2020, he has been working towards his PhD at the Institut für Informationsverarbeitung (TNT) at Leibniz University Hannover. His main research interests are 3D human motion capture and normalizing flows. In 2022, he interned at Epic Games in Pittsburgh, USA, where he worked on 3D human pose and shape estimation.
