I am currently a Ph.D. student at the division of Robotics, Perception and Learning at KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden.

Supervised by Iolanda Leite, I am exploring how robots can improve human-human interactions while acting fully autonomously. Thereby, I am interested in how robots could adjust their actions to perceived group dynamics to assist the group efficiently.

Previously, I have been working in the Corporate Research at KUKA where I focused on mobile robot navigation. I received my B.Sc. and M.Sc. with a Major in Computer Science and a Minor in Robotics at TU Dortmund in Dortmund, Germany.
