About Me

I am a PhD student at KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm under the supervision of Florian T. Pokorny. My research is supported by WASP, the Wallenberg AI, Autonomous Systems and Software Program. Previously I was a researcher at the Institute of Medical Technology and Intelligent Systems at Technical University of Hamburg (TUHH). I received my M.Sc. in Robotics, Cognition, Intelligence from Technical University of Munich (TUM).

I am particularly interested in representation learning and reinforcement learning for applications in robotics and computer vision. At the moment, I am investigating how to advance the manipulation of deformable objects. Compared to rigid objects, this task is particularly challenging due to high-dimensional observations, complicated perception and highly non-linear mechanics.
