About me

Personal background

I'm a PhD student here at RSI and previously was:

  • a research assistant at the Institute of Automatic Control, Leibniz Universität Hannover (2014-03/2014)
  • a student at Leibniz University of Hannover with major in electrical engineering (2008 - 2013)
  • a visiting student at Robert Bosch GmbH (CR/AEG) headquarters in Stuttgart (6 month in 2013)
  • a robotics intern at Bosch Research and Technology Center in Palo Alto, California, USA (6 month in 2012/13)
