Short Vita

Professional background:

  • 1986 - 1989 Studied electrical engineering/communications engineering at BA Stuttgart and Telenorma GmbH
  • 1989 - 1992 Studied electrical engineering at the Ruhr University Bochum and Purdue University West Lafayette, IN, USA. Graduated in 1992 as Dipl.-Ing.
  • 1993 - 1997 Research Associate at the Department of Microelectronic Systems at TH Darmstadt and doctorate (Dr.-Ing.)
  • 1998 - 2009 Industrial activities at Siemens HL, Infineon Technologies AG and Qimonda AG (Munich and Suzhou) in leading positions
  • since 2009 Professor at the Chair of Integrated Electronic Systems at the Technical University of Darmstadt

Research and development

  • Analog and digital integrated circuits and systems
  • Integrated high-voltage generation
  • Application of integrated circuits in robust environments (Industry 4.0, infrastructures, FAIR)
  • High-speed/low-latency circuit and memory architectures for Future Internet applications
  • Printable electronics


  • Research on the future of different types of electronic systems
  • Research into future-proof concepts for the integration of electronics
  • DATABELT: Development of a measuring system for recording and sending, during operation to an external location, measured values within a timing belt - to record these two measured variables, a sensor node was developed that is so small that it can be inserted into a timing belt tooth
  • Combined fiber optic transmission lines: Research into combining analog and digital data channels via a single optical signal path
  • Ultrasonic experimental platform: Development of a circuit board as an experimental platform for 300kHz ultrasonic sensors
  • Planar Reconfigurable Field Effect Transistors: Research on the efficient application of planar reconfigurable FETs

Reference projects

For a manufacturer of veterinary products, a sensor implementation is being evaluated. By simplifying the measurement of diagnostic data, it should enable a more comprehensive evaluation of findings and thus provide a better basis for therapy decisions.
