Welcome to the homepage of Philippe Dreuw.

NOTE: I (finally) finished my PhD thesis work in June 2011!
Currently, I am working at Robert Bosch Gmbh within the corporate research unit in Hildesheim, Germany.

I was a research and teaching assistant at the Human Language Technology and Pattern Recognition Group (HLTPR)
at the Computer Science 6 department of the RWTH Aachen University, and leader of the Image Processing Group.

The main research topics of the chair are

My personal research interests are sign language recognition, appearance-based gesture recognition, video-analysis and tracking, image object and face recognition, off-line arabic handwriting recognition, and pattern recognition.

Brief CV

Philippe Dreuw started to study computer science at the RWTH Aachen University in 1998. In 2001 he has been a student worker at the Institute of Plastics Processing (IKV) and developed a software to detect and measure glass fibers in images. In 2002 he has been a student worker at the University Hospital Aachen within the scope of the Image Retrieval in Medical Applications (IRMA) project. In 2003 he joined the Human Language Technology and Pattern Recognition Group (Chair of Computer Science 6) headed by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Hermann Ney at the RWTH Aachen University as a student worker. The department focusses in research and teaching on Human Language Technology and Pattern Recognition.

He received the German Diploma degree in computer science and a PhD scholarship in 2005 at the RWTH Aachen University and is currently working as PhD research and teaching assistant at the RWTH Aachen University. During his diploma thesis at the Human Language Technology and Pattern Recognition Group in the research area of gesture recognition he acquired expertise in appearance-based gesture recognition, image comparison methods, modeling of image variability, human-machine interaction, video / image processing and tracking.

His work focussed on sign language recognition, appearance-based gesture recognition, video-analysis and tracking, and off-line arabic handwriting recognition.

In 2011, he finished his PhD thesis work and started working as a research engineer at Robert Bosch GmbH.
