Research

My general research interests are robot motion planning and control, machine learning and computer vision. Here is a list of selected past and present projects:

Sampling-based planning for goal-directed robot control
My PhD project, supervised by Robert Haschke and Prof. Dr. Helge Ritter from the Neuroinformatics Group. This work is done in collaboration with Michael Gienger and the Honda Research Institute Europe.

Visual homing using adaptive optical flow
Topic of my diploma thesis, supervised by Lorenz Hillen and Prof. Dr. Ralf Möller from the Computer Engineering Group.

Image feature tracking for motion estimation
Work done during an internship at the Vison, Dynamics and Learning Lab, Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, supervised by René Vidal.
