I am a research assistant and PhD candidate at TU Dresden. My current research focuses on concurrent transmissions in wireless mesh networks using low-power transceivers. I am particularly interested in analyzing the key effects of synchronous transmissions on the physical layer, and based upon that in improving the receiver designs by adapting and extending their topologies.

Besides that, I am interested in the design of communication primitives and protocols as well as embedded hardware/software codesign for wireless cyber-physical systems and the Internet of Things in general. At the theoretical side I have a favour for smart signal processing including statistical signal processing, compressed sensing, and machine learning.

I received a Dipl.-Ing. (BA) degree in Information Technology from the University of Cooperative Education Glauchau (Germany) in 2000 and a Dipl.-Ing. (MSc.) degree in Information Systems Engineering from TU Dresden in 2014. Between 1999 and 2013 I worked as a developer and project manager on several industrial hard- and software products targeting special measurement technology and advanced bus monitoring for the automotive industry. During this time I also contributed to the ASAM GDI and FIBEX standards. After finishing my MSc. studies I have been with the Chairs for Communications Theory and Communication Networks at TU Dresden. Since 2017 I am a member of the NES Lab.
