Brief Biogaphy

I studied electrical engineering and audio communication at the TU Berlin from 2004 to 2010. During my studies I spent one year at the UPM in Madrid, Spain. After my diploma and master thesis I worked as a software developer for zplane.development and Native instruments. Since 2011 I worked as a control system engineer for ventricular assist devices at Berlin Heart GmbH. In April 2015 I started working towards my PhD thesis as a research assistant in control systems group headed by Prof. Jörg Raisch at TU Berlin.


My main research interest is in the field of functional electrical stimulation of SCI patients for cycling and swimming. With our HASOMED team we joint the Cybathlon last year and made the forth rank in the petit-finals.

Open source projects

  • daqbeagle: The daqbeagle is a data aquisition device for analog and digital signals and aswell combined with real-time capable target for simulink/matlab external mode. Together with a small shield it consists of three parts. The library consists of 5 blocks for data aquisition of 7 ADC channels at 12 bit, 8 digital outputs, 8 digital inputs, 2 PWM outputs, 2 DAC outputs (only working with shield or lowpass filter).


  • ert_mac: Target for simulink embedded coder to run simulink models in real-time under MacOSX with up to 10 kHz and the possibility to write custom blocks which use standard operating system calls.


  • Libusb driver for TMSI porti: The developed driver is based on the usage of the libusb-1.0. Using this lib it is possible to run the tmsi/porti device under linux 64bit (14.04) or even a armhf architecture like the beaglebone black.
