  • Chief Investigator, Project Leader (Robotic Vision Evaluation & Benchmarking)

  • PhD Chemnitz University of Technology

  • Queensland University of Technology

Niko received his PhD from Chemnitz University of Technology, Germany in 2012. In his thesis, Niko focused on robust factor graph based models for SLAM and general probabilistic estimation problems and developed the concept of switchable constraints. After his PhD, his research interests have been in the area of robust  place recognition in changing environments.

After two years postdocing in Chemnitz, Niko joined QUT as a Research Fellow in March 2014. His research is continuing robust visual representations for place recognition under extreme appearance changes and will address this problem by utilising and extending various deep learning techniques.

In early 2017, Niko was appointed as Lecturer in the Robotics and Autonomous Systems Discipline at QUT. In November 2017, he joined the Centre Leadership Team through his appointment as a Chief Investigator.
