Since October 2008, I am assistant professor (Juniorprofessorin) at the Department of Computer Science of the University of Freiburg. I am head of the group for Humanoid Robots.
In the course of my research career, I have developed several innovative solutions for robotic systems co-existing and interacting with humans. Among them are probabilistic techniques for navigation with humanoid and wheeled robots as well as for reliably detecting and tracking humans from sensor data and analyzing their motions.
See the research page of my group for further details.
