I received my B.Eng. degree from the Baden-Wuerttemberg Cooperative State University (DHBW) and my M.Sc. degree from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) in 2014 and 2018, respectively.

In my Master's thesis I worked on signal processing for energy-efficient wireless communication systems at the Associate Professorship of Signal Processing (MSV), while partly staying with the Wireless Networking and Communications Group at the University of Texas at Austin (UT), USA.

Since 2019 I am a research assistant at the Institute for Communications Engineering in the group Line Transmission Technology of Prof. Dr.-Ing. Norbert Hanik.

My current research focuses on information transmission over practically relevant fiber channels using the Nonlinear Fourier Transform.

Research Interests

 Signal Processing using the Nonlinear Fourier Transform

Long haul optical fiber transmission
