Short biography:

I studied electrical engineering as a dual student with Airbus Defence and Space. I spent most of my time in the optics lab, working on optical receivers for earth observation satellites. Afterward, I pursued a Master of Science in "electrical engineering and information technology" at TUM. During my studies, I developed a particular interest in robotics control, computer vision, and robot learning. My thesis dealt with the problem of robot navigation in unknown environments that contain movable obstacles. 

I am now working towards a Ph.D. degree with a focus on creating autonomous systems that can act naturally and effectively in complex environments.
