About me

  • 12/2018 - up to now: Working at the Autonomous Intelligent Systems group of Prof. Dr. Wolfram Burgard as Ph.D. student.
  • 08/2015 - 10/2018: Master of Science in Theoretical Mechanical Engineering with minor in Computational Mechanics and Robotics, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT)
  • 10/2011 - 08/2015: Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering with minor in Continuum Mechanics, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT)

Research Interests

In my daily research, I aim at bringing Robotics and Artificial Intelligence, especially Deep Learning, closer together. My goal is to enable autonomous robots to better understand their surroundings with the sensors they have and to allow them to more accurately and robustly navigate through those surroundings in precence of adversarial influences such as sensor noise, uncertainties, and occlusion. More specifically, those topics include mainly:
  • Robot Perception
  • Weakly-Supervised Robot Learning
  • Semi-Supervised Robot Learning
