Christoph Petzoldt

Department Head of the IPS department Robotics and Automation

Curriculum vitae

Christoph Petzoldt studied Systems Engineering (B.Sc and M.Sc) at the University of Bremen, focusing on automation technology and robotics, and graduated in 2017. After his graduation, he was until 2019 in the Robotics Group of the University of Bremen, where he worked in the field of machine learning and did research on learning robotic skills from human demonstration. Since then, Mr. Petzoldt has been working as a researcher at the 'Bremer Institute for Production and Logistics (BIBA)' in the Robotics and Automation department. During this time, he worked on and led R&D projects in the fields of production, logistics, and process automation with a focus on industrial assembly. His main research interests are in the areas of intelligent human-robot collaboration, dynamically reconfigurable production systems as well as assistance systems for human-machine interaction. Since 2020, Mr. Petzoldt has been head of the department Robotics and Automation.
