About me

Last change: 01.05.2023

Update: Since May 2023, I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Cognitive Robotics at Delft University of Technology. Feel free to contact me via our website.

I was a postdoctoral researcher in the division of Robotics, Perception and Learning (RPL) at KTH between 2020 and 2023. Together with Jana Tumová and Danica Kragic, I was working on advanced robotic systems with a high degree of autonomy, robustness, and safety. Before joining KTH, I acquired my PhD at the Technical University of Munich. At the same time, I was working as a research assistant in the motion planning group at the BMW Group Autonomous Driving Departmen.

My vision is a future of robots which robustly and safely accomplish tasks with and around humans. Currently, my research focuses on safe and robust motion planning for mobile robots and manipulators. Therefore, I make use of formal methods (reachability analysis and temporal logic) in combination with machine learning methods (data-driven control and reinforcement learning).
