I am a PhD student at the Robotics and Perception Group led by Prof. Davide Scaramuzza.
Currently, I am working on event-based vision for high-speed robotics and air-ground robot collaboration.
In 2010 and 2012, I received my Bachelor's and Master's degree in Mechanical Engineering from ETH Zurich, respectively.
During my studies at ETH, I was focusing on robotics, dynamics, and computer vision.
I wrote my Master thesis at MIT under the supervision of Prof. John J. Leonard on visual SLAM for space applications.

We develop strategies for aerial and ground robots to work together as a team. By doing so, the robots can profit from each others capabilites. Our demonstration won the KUKA Innovation Award 2014 and was presented in a paper at the IEEE International Symposium on Safety, Security, and Rescue Robotics (SSRR) in 2014.
