I like to work on interdisciplinary tasks. My current research deals with electrical 3D impedance tomography (EIT). From this, process variables in various technical applications can be derived in real time. My former reseach during my PHD dealed with parallel real-time simulation of mechatronic systems in hardware-in-the-loop applications for the automotive industry. Through this work I have acquired my competences in the fields of modelling, measurement technology, signal filtering, hardware near programming, electronics, FPGAs and numerical methods. I love programming to solve any kind of problem and to speed up or optimize work processes. For this I mainly use Python, C++ or Matlab. An other passion of mine is working on the best possible graphic representation of data of any kind, mostly done with Python.
