About me

I am a third-year Ph.D. student at the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich & Siemens AG, advised by Prof. Volker Tresp at the Research Group Machine Intelligence of Siemens Corporate Technology. My research interests include machine learning, especially deep learning and reinforcement learning, and their application to computer vision, natural language processing, and robotics. In particular, I am interested in improving the sample-efficiency of current reinforcement learning algorithms and apply them to solve real-world tasks.

Prior to joining Siemens AG & LMU Munich, I received my master’s degree in Robotics, Cognition, Intelligence from the Technical University of Munich in 2016. I also spent seven months at the Institute of Robotics and Mechatronics of the German Aerospace Center (DLR) conducting my master’s thesis. Under the supervision of Haider Ali and Patrick van der Smagt, I worked on deep learning for action recognition in 3D videos.
