My mission is to reach human performance at fast changing, uncertain, rich and high-dimensional tasks with robots. I believe this goal can be achieved by developing Machine Learning methods, especially Reinforcement Learning, for soft muscular systems.
I am a research group leader within the Empirical Inference department at the Max-Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems in Tübingen (Germany). Before, I pursued a PhD in Machine Learning and Robotics with Jan Peters and Bernhard Schölkopf in the Empirical Inference department at the MPI for Intelligent Systems. During my PhD I interned at X, the Moonshot Factory (formerly Google X). I received a MSc degree in Biomedical Engineering at the Imperial College London and a BEng degree in Information and Electrical Engineering from HAW Hamburg with generous support by Siemens.
