I am currently a postdoctoral researcher working in the field of robotics and computer vision at ICSI Berkeley and UC Berkeley. Since I started as a graduate student in 2002, I have worked in a variety of different robotics projects; from soccer playing robots, over autonomous cars towards the PR2 household robot platform from Willow Garage. In these fields I contributed on different topics, i.e., object modeling and tracking, kinematics for legged robots, control theory, and computer vision. I was most fascinated by my work on an autonomous car, where I had the possibility to develop a VW Passat, which since then officially has been driving autonomously on public streets in the center and autobahn of Berlin, Germany. Prior to this I spent nearly six years in the field of soccer playing legged robots and participated at international competitions.
