Curriculum Vitæ

I received my Masters degree in Robotics, Cognition, Intelligence from TUM in August 2015. After a short break I started an internship at the Institute of Robotics and Mechatronics at DLR. In April 2016, I joined the Human Brain Project's SP10 Neurorobotics research group here at TUM as a research associate. I am researching Brain-inspired Learning Algorithms for Robotics and taking part in the development of the Neurorobotics Platform.

If you are looking for a seminar topic, a thesis topic, or a HIWI position, write me an email indicating your background and skills.
