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

Short-Reach Fiber-Optic Communications

Direct-Detection (DD) receivers are a promising approach for short-reach fiber-optic communication, as they can be built with little hardware complexity, low power consumption and small form factors. However, DD receivers only measure the power of the complex-valued electric field and therefore lose information about the signal phase, which is needed for the compensation of intersymbol interference (ISI). We investigate this problem both in the context of detection strategies and from an information theory perspective.
