Research Interests

  • Robotic manipulations with formal guarantees
  • Reachability analysis for hybrid systems

Topic Offers

I am always looking for self-motivated students to solve interesting problems arising in my research areas. General ideas could be to apply formal methods to robotic manipulations to gurantee critical speicifications in interaction tasks, to reform robot control with formal methods, or to extend formal techniques for hybrid systems. If you are interested in one of the currently available topics, please feel welcome to send me a mail (title "Application - [Topic] - Your Name") with your up-to-date CV and transcript of records attached.
