About me

I am a Phd student in the Humanoid Robots Lab headed by Maren Bennewitz at the University of Bonn. I received my master's degree in Automation and Robotics from the Technical University of Dortmund in 2015. 

I am currently looking for a student research assistant (HiWi) to assist me in my research. More details can be found here
