About me

I joined the Institute for Artificial Intelligence at the University of Bremen in September 2012 to pursue my PhD under the supervision of Michael Beetz. From February 2012 until then, I was a PhD student at Prof Beetz' Intelligent Autonomous Systems Group at TU Munich (TUM). In my research, I focus on combining knowledge representation and processing with robot motion control to build robot control programs that can reason about their motions.

I spent July-September 2013 as a summer intern with the Personal Robotics Lab at the Carnegie Mellon University. In Oktober and December 2012 I was a visiting scholar at the PMA division of KU Leuven.

Before starting my PhD, I studied Computer Engineering at TU Berlin (TUB), focussing on robotics and control engineering. I wrote my diploma thesis in TUB's Robotics and Biology Lab. From 2007 until 2009 I was a dual degree student studying Computer Engineering at the Shanghai Jiao Tong University.

You can find me on Google Scholar and on LinkedIn.
