Curriculum Vitae

Jakob Thumm joined the Cyber Physical Systems Group as a PhD candidate under the supervision of Prof. Dr.-Ing. Matthias Althoff in February 2021. He received his bachelor's and master's degree in Mechatronics and Information Technology from the Karlsruher Institute of Technology (KIT).

His research focuses on safe motion planning for robots using deep reinforcement learning and formal methods techniques.

Offered Thesis Topics

I am always looking for self-motivated students to solve interesting problems arising in my research areas. If you are interested in one of the currently available topics, or in my research in general and want to write a thesis in this field, send me a mail with a brief statement of motivation and your transcript of records.
