Brief Biography

I studied physical engineering at the Technical University of Berlin in Germany from 2008 to 2015, with focus on mechatronic systems and numerics.

Since finishing my studies in 2015 I’m a PhD candidate in the Control Systems Group headed by Prof. Jörg Raisch at TU Berlin. Further I was working as a research assistant in the Bio-robotics and the Human-Robot- Interaction Lab since 2015, both headed by Dr. Ivo Boblan, which were part of the control systems group until the end of 2016. At the beginning of 2017 the Bio-robotics Lab changed to the Beuth University of Applied Sciences Berlin and is now headed by Prof. Ivo Boblan. Due to this I'm now working as a research assistant at the Beuth University of Applied Sciences Berlin.

My special interests are the modelling and control of pneumatic systems, robots and pneumatic muscle actuators (PMAs).

Research Projects


  • Control of an exoskeleton for the upper body, driven by pneumatic muscle actuators


  • Control of the Festo Bionic Motion Robot exhibited at the Hannover Fair 2017
  • KobotAERGO - Development of a soft human-robot-interface with adaptive stiffness for a collaborative robot in an industrial environment
