I am a postdoctoral researcher in computational robotics at Marc Toussaint's Learning and Intelligent Systems group at the TU Berlin funded by the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems (MPI-IS).
My research interest lies in optimization and planning for complex and high-dimensional robotic systems. I have a particular interest in abstract representations (multilevel motion planning), in topological robotics (multimodal optimization) and manipulation/contact planning. My work got published in venues like ICRA, IROS, WAFR, ISRR, RAL, TRO and I am a developer for the Open Motion Planning Library. I currently also organize the robotics colloquium at the TU Berlin (website).
