I'm a postdoctoral researcher at the Division of Robotics, Perception and Learning (RPL), Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Stockholm. Before my current position, I received my PhD in Computer Science at KTH under the supervision of Danica Kragic Jensfelt and Johannes A. Stork. My dissertation is publicly accessible on DiVa. My current research interests lie within the field of manipulation planning for autonomous robots, in particular in grasp, motion and rearrangement planning.
I received both my Bachelor's and my Master's degree in Computer Science from Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), Germany, in 2011 and 2014 respectively. During my studies I worked at Tamim Asfour's High Performance Humanoid Technologies (H²T) Lab at KIT. For my master's thesis I visited Siddhartha Srinivasa's Personal Robotics Lab at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) in Pittsburgh, USA, where I worked together with Jennifer King on rearrangement planning for manipulation in clutter.
