Jan Peters

Position: Senior Research Scientist  Unit: Schölkopf

While I remain affliated with MPI as an adjunct scientist, I am now a full professor at Technische Universität Darmstadt (TU Darmstadt).

My research centers around the goal of bringing advanced motor skills to robotics using techniques from machine learning. You can check out my research interests and my publications for further information on my private homepage at private homepage.

Jan Peters is a full professor at Technische Universität Darmstadt (TU Darmstadt) heading the intelligent systems group while still being affliated with the MPI heading the robot learning lab as an adjunct scientist.

Jan Peters joined the Max-Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics in April 2007 as a research scientist. Before joining MPI, Jan Peters studied Electrical Engineering, Computer Science and Mechanical Engineering. He graduated from the University of Hagen in 2000 with a Diplom-Informatiker (German M.Sc. in Computer Science) and from Munich University of Technology in 2001 with a Diplom-Ingenieur in Electrical Engineering (German M.Sc. in Electrical Engineering). In 2000-2001, he spent two semesters as visiting student at National University of Singapore. In 2002, he completed a M.Sc. in Computer Science and, in 2005, a M.S. in Mechanical Engineering both from USC. He joined USC's Computer Science Ph.D. program and the CLMC Lab in Fall 2001. Jan Peters has been a visiting research student at the Department of Robotics at the German Aerospace Research Center in Germany, at Siemens Advanced Engineering in Singapore and at the Department of Humanoid Robotics and Computational Neuroscience at the Advanded Telecommunication Research (ATR) Center in Japan. Jan Peters graduated from University of Southern California with a Ph.D. in Computer Science in March 2007. He remains affiliated with the CLMC Lab as an adjunct researcher.
