I have joined the Institute for Artificial Intelligence from Universität Bremen in January 2014, after pursuing my Master's degree in Informatics at Technische Universität München (TUM). Before joining the group (2011 - 2014) I was a student research assistant at the Intelligent Autonomous Systems Group from TUM and latter at the Institute for Artificial Intelligence from Universität Bremen.
