Biography

I am a PhD student in the Advanced Interactive Technologies lab at ETH Zurich under the supervision of Professor Otmar Hilliges. I received my BSc (2016) and MSc (2018) in Electrical Engineering and Information Technology from ETH Zürich with a focus on robotics, machine learning and control.

Research Interests

My research interests lie at the intersection of deep reinforcement learning, multi-agent systems and interactive learning. My current work focuses on learning hand-interactions in robotic systems with deep reinforcement learning and using attention models in deep reinforcement learning agents.
