About me

I am a PhD researcher in Humanoid Robots Lab, headed by Prof. Maren Bennewitz at the University of Bonn. My research interests are Legged robots dynamic locomotion, state estimation and SLAM. I am mostly interested in developing and generating control frameworks with various approaches (MPC, machine learning) for physical interactions of robots such as locomotion, and navigation in different environments with the combination of perception, and evaluating these behaviors on real robots.

I received my master's degree in Mechatronics from Hamburg University of Technology in 2022. During my master studies, I did two year internship at Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems, working on legged robots locomotion control, and state estimation.
