Bio: I am a fifth year 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"). Currently, I am a visiting PhD student at UC Berkeley in the AUTOLAB with Prof. Ken Goldberg.
Motivation: Manipulating deformable fragile objects or open containers is challenging. While completing the manipulation task, it is further important to not damage the object and to avoid undesired effects such as content spilling of an open container caused by the deformation.
Research interests: Model-based contact and grasp analysis for deformable objects and compliant gripper jaws. Learning-based approaches trained by the model to grasp unknown objects.
