I’m a recently graduated Ph.D. student at KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Computer Science in the RPL Lab. My main research interests are robotics, machine learning, and computer vision. Specifically, my main research focus is on robotic grasping – learning robots to recognize patterns in categories of everyday objects that can be exploited to perform more efficient grasps of the objects that belong to the category.
Before being in Academia I was a master student in Engineering Physics. I did my Master Thesis on image segmentation at TTI (Toyota Technological Institute) in Chicago under the supervision of Raquel Urtasun. Prior to that, I was at TU Berlin studying machine learning courses under professor Manfred Opper and professor Klaus-Robert Muller.
And before my engineering studies, at the dawn of time, I was juggling music studies with being a web design freelancer.
My free time nowadays is mostly focused on the within academia common pursuit of long-distance running. Trying to get that Marathon time under 3hrs!
