Mentoring Experience

I had the chance to work together with many talented people in different scientific institutions throughout my academic career. Currently, I am supervising two Ph.D. candidates under Prof. Metin Sitti’s administration at the Max – Planck Institute. Here, I also supervised two master’s and four bachelor’s level students in their projects about soft robotics. During my doctoral studies at the University of Cambridge and ETH – Zürich, I worked together and supervised three master’s level and one bachelor’s level student, which ended up with multiple high-impact scientific Publications on soft robotics.

Educational Workshops

My research allowed me to organize and attend multiple educational workshops for a wide range of audiences. You can find more information about these activities on the Outreach page.
