I came to the U.S. in August 2000 as an exchange student from the University of Karlsruhe, Germany, on a scholarship from the Federation of German-American Clubs. In August 2001 I changed to the Ph.D. program and received a Master's degree in Computer Science in December 2002. In Fall 2004 I was visiting the Autonomous Intelligent Systems lab of Wolfram Burgard at the University of Freiburg. In Fall 2005 I was an intern at the Interactive Visual Media Group at Microsoft Research in Redmond, Washington, working with Drew Steedly, Rick Szeliski and Michael Cohen on a project related to the bird's eye view in local.live.com.
I am interested in computer vision and autonomous robotics and work as a graduate research assistant in Georgia Tech's BORG lab, with Frank Dellaert as my advisor. In July 2002, our lab participated in the AAAI Urban Search and Rescue Competition. Previously, I have worked in Ron Arkin's Mobile Robot Lab. Besides learning for behavior based autonomous robot systems, I have done interesting work with 3D models from laser range data, combining computer graphics and robotics.
