I'm a PhD student in the Emprical Inference Department, supervised by Dieter Büchler and Bernhard Schölkopf. One of our current goals is to improve the table tennis skills of our muscle-based robot arm. I am also very interested in using sim-to-real approaches to make Reinforcement Learning on soft robots more efficient. Before starting my PhD, I studied in Heidelberg and completed my Master's thesis at the MPI in cooperation with Prof. Jan Peters.
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
