Machine Learning | Autonomous Driving | Computer Vision


I use machine learning to make autonomous vehicles perceive and understand their environment.

I am a Machine Learning Engineer in the Scene Understanding Group at Mercedes-Benz R&D. As a Product Owner, I am responsible for the Perception, Fusion, and Prediction for the next generation of highly automated vehicles.

Previously, I was a PhD student with the LiDAR Perception Group at Mercedes-Benz R&D and the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), where I was advised by Prof. J. Marius Zöllner. My research is published under the title “LiDAR Domain Adaptation - Automotive 3D Scene Understanding”.


Jan 2, 2024 Over 100 citations! Within the last year, I reached the magic number of 100 citations on my papers.
Dec 5, 2023 I was appointed member of the advisory board of the Leadership Talent Lab (LTL) at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT)
Nov 30, 2023 I held a talk about building an end-to-end differentiable and modular AD stack at the VDI Wissensforum Umfelderfassung im Fahrzeug.
Nov 16, 2023 Yesterday, I held a talk about how to build an autonomous driving stack in the IT-Kolloquium at Esslingen University.
Oct 9, 2023 Last week, I attended ICCV 2023 in Paris, France.
