About Me

In 2013, I received Master's degrees in Electrical Engineering from Karlsruhe University of Applied Sciences and in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Ryerson University (Toronto). Afterwards, I was working towards my doctoral degree at Karlsruhe University of Applied Sciences in collaboration with the Technical University of Munich (TUM). In 2018, I defended my thesis with the title “Direct Plenoptic Odometry – Robust Tracking and Mapping with a Light Field Camera”. Between 2018 and 2019, I was working at Visteon in Karlsruhe. In 2019, I joined the startup Artisense in Munich co-founded by Prof. Daniel Cremers (TUM). Since September 2021, I am a professor at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology at Karlsruhe University of Applied Sciences.
