My current position: Product development of Magnetic Resonance Imagining (MRI) scanners to determine e.g. safety features ranging from the high frequency system (HF) to software. Furthermore, I am involved in clinical trials simulation like studies of new gradient systems. Besides profound knowledge of high frequency, this work requires interdisciplinary assignments, such as leading multidisciplinary groups of experts and undertaking periodic business assignments abroad.
During my degree course in electrical engineering at the University of Paderborn I gathered multidisciplinary experience, e.g. from supervising practical experiments, heading tutorials as well as gaining insight into two research areas whilst working as a student assistant. The research was particularly industry-oriented, which made me graduate in communications engineering.
My diploma thesis in the high-frequency engineering working group had been part of a project, the results of which I presented during my visit to the satellite operator SES Astra in Luxemburg. Since I was a research associate in the field of communications engineering, I have been involved in the development and realization of microwave circuits as well as in the investigation of adaptive antennas for DTH satellite reception.
The wide and diverse experience as well as working on a high level of self-responsibility helped me to start my career with the Swedish company Ericsson Eurolab in Nuremberg. My main high-frequency focus was on adaptive antennas as well as GSM and UMTS system design. To deepen my skills in this new environment, I later moved on to Siemens.
