Since January 2013, I've been a post-doc in the Intelligent Autonomous Systems group at the Institute for Artificial Intelligence. Before, I worked at the ATR Intelligent Robotics and Communication Laboratories in Kyoto, Japan, on the Ubiquitous Network Robot project.
I obtained the Doctor in computer science from TUM in November 2011 for my thesis titled Knowledge Processing for Autonomous Robots. From February to May 2009, I was a visiting scholar in the Human Sensing Lab at Carnegie Mellon University where I worked with Fernando De la Torre on models of human everyday activities. Previously, I studied Electrical Engineering and Information Technology at the RWTH Aachen, Germany, and Robotics and Embedded Systems at the ENSTA in Paris, France. I spent one year as an intern at the Accenture Technology Labs in Sophia Antipolis, France, where I worked on visual localization and mapping.
