I received my B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Electrical Engineering from Technische Universität Berlin in 2015 and 2017 respectively. During my master studies I was working as a student research assistant with the Telecommunication Networks Group at TU Berlin. Since 2017 I have been a visiting research student with the Distributed Sensing Systems Group at CSIRO, Australia. In 2018 I joined the Network Embedded Systems Lab as a PhD student.
The focus of my work is on battery-free, energy harvesting devices. My vision is to push the boundaries of what these tiny and sustainable devices can do by allowing them to communicate and to collaborate.
I am the lead developer of the Shepherd testbed, a distributed tool for experiments with collections of battery-free devices. With Find, we developed the first neighbor discovery protocol for battery-free devices that allows devices to initiate direct device-to-device communication. Most recently, I’ve been working on a connection protocol that enables two battery-free devices to establish and maintain long-running connections under dynamically changing energy conditions.
