I am a postdoctoral robotics researcher in the Institute for Artificial Intelligence and Autonomous Systems (A2S) at Hochschule Bonn-Rhein-Sieg (H-BRS). I completed my PhD in the Knowledge-Based Systems Group at RWTH Aachen University in a joint cooperation with the Autonomous Systems Group at H-BRS. The focus of my PhD work was on (i) making the process of robot action execution more transparent and (ii) increasing the introspection of robots so that, on the one hand, they are not oblivious to failures and, on the other hand, can be diagnosed more easily.
In general, my work is focused on cognitive robotics, such that I am interested in increasing the introspection of robots, particularly so that robots can learn from their failures effectively, as well as in equipping robots with capabilities that are essential for existing in human-centred environment, such as contextual awareness and the ability to personalise the behaviour to the needs of individual users. Ultimately, I am interested in developing service robots that are useful to people and can benefit them in their everyday lives.
