I’m a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Engineering at the University of Technology Nuremberg, Germany. My research interests are swarm robotics, multi-robot systems, evolutionary robotics, and ROS 2 for robot swarms.
In 2022, I defended my doctoral dissertation titled “The Predicting Swarm: Evolving Collective Behaviors for Robot Swarms by Minimizing Surprise” at the University of Lübeck (Germany). I was a member of the Service Robotics Group headed by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Heiko Hamann as part of the Institute of Computer Engineering, a postdoctoral researcher at the University Konstanz (Germany) in the Cyber-Physical Systems Group headed by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Heiko Hamann, an affiliate member of the Centre for the Advanced Study of Collective Behaviour, and the Ada Lovelace Distinguished Research Fellow of the Center for Scalable Data Analytics and Artificial Intelligence at Technische Universität Dresden, Germany.
Furthermore, I hold an M. Sc. degree in Computer Science from the Technical University Berlin (Germany) and a B. Sc. in Applied Computer Science from the Cooperative State University Baden-Wuerttemberg Stuttgart (Germany).
