Biography

I am a final year Ph.D. student at the Department of Computer Science at ETH Zurich, working under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Otmar Hilliges. My focus lies in the areas of Computer Vision and Control Policy Learning, with the goal of enabling robots to learn new tasks from human demonstrations. I am interested in 6D pose estimation of rigid objects from RGB-D data, which allows robots to learn new manipulation tasks. For learning motions skills from human demonstration, I am interested in Imitation Learning and Reinforcement Learning approaches.
