About Me

I am a Research Group Leader at the Vodafone Chair Mobile Communications Systems at TU Dresden, Germany. I received the Dipl.-Ing. degree in electrical engineering and information technology and the Dr.-Ing. degree in electrical engineering and information technology both from RWTH Aachen University, Aachen, Germany, in 2003 and 2010, respectively. From 2004 to 2010, I was with the Institute for Integrated Signal Processing Systems, RWTH Aachen University, Germany. From 2010 to 2013 I was a postdoctoral researcher at the Institute for Theoretical Information Technology at RWTH Aachen University, Germany. I joined TU Dresden in April 2013. In 2007, I have been a visiting researcher at ETH Zurich, Switzerland. From October 2015 to March 2016 I have been a visiting assistant professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering at Stanford University, USA.

Research Goal, Vision

My research interests are in the area of information theory. Our research goal is contribute to the understanding of the fundamental limits and principles of transmission and processing of information based on theoretical analysis.

Currently, I work on the following topics:

  • Channels with quantization
  • Information theory for biological cell communication
  • Sensor fusion in cyber-physical systems
  • Deep learning 

For more information about my research see my publications.
