I joined the Institute for Artificial Intelligence at the University of Bremen in 2014 to pursue a PhD under supervision of Prof. Michael Beetz. My research focus lies in the acquisition/representation of knowledge about manipulation actions and their effects through imitation learning and simulation.

Before joining the group headed by Prof. Beetz, I studied Artificial Intelligence (BSc) and Cognitive Neuroscience (MSc) at Radboud University. I also worked as a research assistant at the Sleep and Neuroimaging lab and Affective Cognitive Neuroscience lab at UC Berkeley. My interests lie in machine learning and the intersection of AI and CNS, particularly regarding how information can learned and represented.
