Bio: I am a finishing PhD student with Prof. Eckehard Steinbach at the Technical University of Munich (TUM). I studied Electrical Engineering and Information Technology at TUM for both Bachelor and Master (with the honor "passed with high distinction"). From April to October 2019, I was a visiting researcher in the AUTOLAB at UC Berkeley with Prof. Ken Goldberg.
Motivation: Manipulating deformable fragile objects or open containers is challenging. The grasp should resist disturbances while minimally deforming the object so as not to damage it or dislodge liquids.
Research interests: Modeling frictional contacts for compliant gripper jaws and learning robust grasps for 3D deformable objects.
