I am a PhD student at the University of Toronto Institute for Aerospace Studies (UTIAS) working at the Dynamic Systems Lab supervised by Prof. Angela Schoellig. I am interested in combining model predictive control with machine learning methods for safe and high performance robotic applications in uncertain and dynamic environments.
Before joining UTIAS I spent time at Prof. Francesco Borrelli’s MPC Lab at UC Berkeley, and Prof. Ludovic Righetti’s Movement Generation and Control Group at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems in Tübingen. Previously I also worked at the Volkswagen Group Research Department in Wolfsburg and Silicon Valley. I received my Master’s degree from Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH) in Mechatronics.
