Felix Berkenkamp portrait

Hi, I am Felix Berkenkamp, a Ph.D. student at the Learning & Adaptive Systems Group at ETH Zürich. I am supervised by Andreas Krause at ETH and co-supervised by Angela Schoellig at the Dynamic Systems Lab at the University of Toronto.

My main research interest lies at the intersection of machine learning, control theory, and robotics, where I focus on the questions of how robots can safely explore unknown environments and how they can improve their controllers without failures. In particular, this currently involves topics around Bayesian optimization, robust control, and reinforcement learning.

I completed my BS and MS in mechanical engineering at ETH Zürich and completed the research for my master thesis at the University of Toronto.

Students:  If you're interested in doing a master thesis related to learning and control at ETH or in Toronto please contact me.
