Intro

My name is Manuel and I am very passionate about innovation and entrepreneurship and my focus areas lie in Robotics, Artificial Intelligence and Computer Vision. I studied Electrical Engineering and Information Technology at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) with a BS & MS and spend a semester abroad at the Nanyang Technological University (NTU) in Singapore. Additionally, I did a Master in Management at TUM and an Honours Degree in Technology Management at the Center for Digital Technology and Management (CDTM). Currently I am doing a research stay at the Biorobotics Lab (HBL) of the Harvard University (Harvard) in Massachusetts. In 2017 I was a researcher at the Robotics Lab of the Stanford University in California (Stanford), working on an underwater hand gesture recognition to enable robot-diver interaction.

Technology

Below you can find a selection of technology projects that I have done in the past.

During my bachelor thesis, I was working on fiber optic rail sensors. I was using data analytics to develop a compensation for thermal and mechanical influences during on side usage of the sensors. Based on the results new sensor developments could be adjusted and improved.
