I have gained experience in research and development work as well as project leadership in multiple projects funded nationally and internationally.
My main research focus is on robust perception for interaction and collaboration. This explicitly includes both perspectives: Perception of the environment and people therein as well as perception of the system by the human. It therefore links aspects of 3D computer vision and visualization through augmented and virtual reality.
I was able to build leadership skills in multiple ways. Most recently, I manage a group of five researchers in the context of human-robot collaboration. In this role, I lead multiple research projects. Previously, I gained experience as a Work Package Leader in the H2020 DexROV Project and as team leader during our participation in the 2013 Spacebot Cup organized by the German Aerospace Center (DLR). Besides that, I laterally led other PhD students and post-docs in a number of projects.
I have worked in the following research projects:
