"When I first came into contact with the subject of control engineering during my bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering, I was immediately enthusiastic about it. No other discipline combines mechanics, electronics, robotics, measurement technology, mathematics and computer science so elegantly. In the course of my studies, I decided to do a doctorate at the Institute of Mechanics and Mechatronics. There I was able to work on a variety of interdisciplinary projects: From intelligent energy management for buildings, to intelligent wheel loaders, to highly dynamic battery test systems for the automotive industry. Today I am particularly proud of the research results from the latter project, which I can now bring to market in my work at AVL List GmbH."
