I studied Engineering Cybernetics at the OvGU Magdeburg in Germany from 2004 to 2009. 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.
From 2010 to 2015 I was a research assistant in the Control Systems Group at TU Berlin working with Jörg Raisch. In March and December 2014 I was a visiting PhD student at the Cyber-Physical Systems Laboratory at UCLA working with Paulo Tabuada. I obtained my PhD degree from TU Berlin in September 2015.
