Felix Berkenkamp portrait

I am a research scientist at the Bosch Center for AI near Stuttgart, Germany. Previously I completed my PhD at the Learning & Adaptive Systems Group at ETH Zurich, for which I received the ELLIS PhD award. During my PhD I was advised by Andreas Krause and was co-advised by Angela Schoellig at the University of Toronto.

My goal is to enable dynamic systems to safely and autonomously learn in uncertain real-world environments. This requires new reinforcement learning algorithms that respect the physical limitations and constraints of dynamic systems and provide theoretical safety guarantees.

I held a AI fellowship from the Open Philanthropy Project and was an Associated Fellow at the Max Planck ETH Center for Learning systems. Previously I was the Workflow Co-chair for ICML 2018 and a postgraduate affiliate at the Vector institute. I have completed research internships at Microsoft Research and Deepmind.
