Lennart received his bachelor in electrical engineering and information technology (B.Sc.) at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) in 2014. Then, he moved to Munich and enrolled at TUM School of Management and the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering to study management (M.Sc.) and electrical engineering (M.Sc.) with a focus on neuroengineering. During this time he took additional courses in biophysics and biomedical engineering, thereby discovering his interest in describing biological phenomena with mathematical tools. In 2018, Lennart started as a PhD student in our group working on the electrochemical detection of silver nanoparticles via single-impact electrochemistry (SIE). His research mainly focuses on strategies to enhance the sensitivity of this detection method by using microfluidics as well as surface modifications. Furthermore, he aims for a new biosensor concept based on the detection of silver nanoparticles.
In addition, Lennart is currently leading our investigations in the acquisition of brain signals via non-invasive techniques, such as electroencephalography (EEG) and functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS). Here, we work on a passive brain-computer interface (BCI) prototype that is able to detect error related potentials according to alterations of the visual stimulus. Moreover, in collaboration with the neuroradiology group at the MRI and the image-based biomedical modeling (IBBM) group, we investigate the application of mobile EEG and fNIRS-measurements in the context of stroke detection and classification in the acute phase.
