I am a PhD student working with Jan Peters in the Robot Learning Lab, where we have a 7-DoF Barrett arm. My dream is that the robot will beat me in table tennis one day (but I'm really good!). We are currently working on applying learning algorithms on the robotic table tennis setup. I am especially interested in optimal control and reinforcement learning.
Previously I was a master student at ETH Zurich where I studied Applied Mathematics and wrote my thesis in the control group (IDSC lab) of Raffaello D'Andrea.
Our goal is to understand the principles of Perception, Action and Learning in autonomous systems that successfully interact with complex environments and to use this understanding to design future systems
