About meI am a PhD student in the Autonomous Intelligent Systems group headed by Wolfram Burgard at the University of Freiburg. I am interested in robot learning from demonstrations and in methods for combining high-level and low-level reasoning techniques for real-world robots.
- March 2012: M.Sc. in Computer Science, University of Freiburg. Focus: artificial intelligence and robotics.
- February 2006: B.Sc. in Mechatronics Engineering, University of Jordan.
Publications and ongoing research can be found on the left panel. Complete Résumé: here.
- Robot learning from demonstrations
- Hybrid reasoning
Current Research ProjectsI am currently involved in the Hybris-C1 project, which is part of the DFG research unit on hybrid reasoning for intelligent systems (Hybris).
