Hello. I’m Marcel Kaufmann.
Master of Science in Photonics and Computer Vision
Ph.D. Candidate in Computer Engineering
What I do
Currently, I am a PhD candidate in Computer Engineering at the „Making Innovative Space Technologies“ Laboratory at Polytechnique Montréal in Canada.
I have recently completed my assignment as a NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) Visiting Student Researcher where I was working on multi-robot systems for the exploration of challenging and unknown underground environments with Team CoSTAR. Find more info about MIST Lab and Team CoSTAR here:
I’m a full-stack roboticist with a background in photonics, computer vision, multi-robot mission autonomy, and human-robot interaction.
Solving challenging problems is a passion of mine for which I deploy my professional skills that I continuously extend.
Hence, these skills include but are not limited to the following programming languages, libraries and tools:
- Python, C/C++, Matlab, IDL, Java, Java Script
- OpenCV, PCL
- Git, SVN, CMake
- Qt, React
- Unity as VR Engine
I’m interested in Robotics, Mission Autonomy, Human-Robot Interaction, Photonics and Computer Vision. My dissertation focuses on “Symbiotic Human and Multi-Robot Planetary Exploration Systems”. I’m expecting to graduate in early fall 2022. Please visit Google Scholar to see our latest work:
