About

Jan Winkler graduated from Universität Stuttgart as an engineer (Dipl. Ing.) in control theory (engineering cybernetics) in 2012. His main subjects were modeling and control of mechanical systems as well as cognitive robotics and distributed artificial intelligence. Besides majoring in robotics, he worked as assistant researcher for several institutes and companies, covering a wide range of robot models (developmental and industrial) and numerical optimization techniques for real-time control applications. In this context, the ROS robot middlware was also part of his work field while working at the Universität Stuttgart, especially in RoboCup applications.

After writing his diploma thesis at the Toyohashi University of Technology, Toyohashi, Japan, he started working for the Institute for Artificial Intelligence, Universität Bremen, in June, 2012.

His main research field consists of high level plan design and situationally aware execution, as well as plan abstraction, primarily focussed on the PR2 robot platform. Other fields he is active in include the collection of episodic robot memories, and plan improvement based on those experiences.
