I studied Engineering Cybernetics at the OvGU Magdeburg in Germany. During my studies I spent one year at UBC in Vancouver, Canada, working with Guy Dumont and six month at LTH in Lund, Sweden, working with Anders Rantzer. I did my PhD within the Control Systems Group at TU Berlin working with Jörg Raisch, with repeated visits to the Cyber-Physical Systems Laboratory at UCLA working with Paulo Tabuada. I then joined MPI-SWS in Kaiserslautern as a Post-doctoral researcher working with Rupak Majumdar.
In Fall 2020 I received an Emmy Noether Grant from the German Science Foundation (DFG) to establish my own research group at MPI-SWS which develops “Automated Modular Synthesis Techniques for Reliable Cyber Physical System Design”. Since 2023, I am a PI in the Transregional Collaborative Research Center “Foundations of Perspicuous Software Systems”.
Within this DFG-funded research cluster I co-lead the project on “Distributed Knowledge and Information Flow” with Bernd Finkbeiner (CISPA).
