about me




My first research was in computer vision: I started with traffic sign recognition during my diploma thesis and from there moved to more general object detection and 6d pose estimation. In my PhD I focused on service-based architectures for applying these computer vision methods in a manufacturing context. My research then gradually extended to the robotics domain, first in the context of assembly tasks with known objects and later focusing more on data-driven methods for robotic grasping of novel objects. One aspect of that is the benchmarking of grasping and manipulation methods to foster comparability and reproducibility of experimental results.
