I received my diploma in electrical engineering from the TU Dresden. In 2017 I joined the Autonomous Motion Department at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems. My current research focuses on distributed and event-based wireless control of cyber-physical systems. This in particular involves the joint integration of communication and control systems, which must be robust enough to deal with the imperfections of wireless information transmission (delays, packet drops). As communication is a shared resource in distributed settings, the communication should be reduced to the necessary instants exploting event-based methods. One crucial point here is the capability to predict future communication demands to allow the communication system to reallocate resources.
Apart from this my research interests include general control theory, robotics, learning and autonomous systems, and path planning algorithms.
Wireless communication and embedded computation are key enabling technologies for future autonomous systems. Embedded devices allow for gathering and processing data in remote and distributed locations, while wireless multi-hop networks offer unprecedented flexibility in sharing data between these devices, for example, to increase c...
Our goal is to understand the principles of Perception, Action and Learning in autonomous systems that successfully interact with complex environments and to use this understanding to design future systems
