I am a research scientist at the Bosch Center for AI. Previously, I completed my PhD at ETH Zurich, for which I received the ELLIS PhD award. My PhD advisors were Andreas Krause and Angela Schoellig (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, was an Associated Fellow at the Max Planck ETH Center for Learning systems and a postgraduate affiliate at the Vector institute. Previously I was the Workflow Co-chair for ICML 2018 and completed research internships at Microsoft Research and Deepmind.
