Biography

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.

Research Interests

Direct-Detection (DD) is a cost-effective approach for short-reach fiber-optic communication. A DD receiver uses a single photodiode to measure the intensity of the impinging signal. This suggests that DD is not compatible with phase modulation. However, using oversampling, the phase can be recovered by exploiting inter-symbol interference (ISI).

We investigate DD for short-reach communication in the context of information theory and estimation strategies.
