Mail. Svenja Stark

Svenja Stark joined the Intelligent Autonomous Systems Group as a PhD student in December 2016. She is working on the IKIDA-project, which is about interactive AI algorithms & cognitive models for human-AI interaction.

Previously, she has been working on the GOAL-Robots project that aimed at developing goal-based open-ended autonomous learning robots; building lifelong learning robots.

Before joining the Autonomous Systems Labs, Svenja Stark received a Bachelor and a Master of Science degree in Computer Science from the TU Darmstadt. During her studies, she completed parts of her graduate coursework at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst. Her thesis entitled "Learning Probabilistic Feedforward and Feedback Policies for Generating Stable Walking Behaviors" was written under supervision of Elmar Rueckert and Jan Peters.
