Curriculum Vitae

2019 Doctoral degree - Subject of the thesis: Regenerative braking strategies to increase energy efficiency in electric vehicles, Ruhr University Bochum
since 2011 Research Assistant, Ruhr University Bochum
 2005-2010 Graduate Studies in Electrical Engineering and Information Technology (Graduation: German Diplom), Ruhr University Bochum


Thematic Priority

The main research area with regard to the doctoral thesis is the recuperation in electric vehicles. In most of the currently available vehicles the large part of braking energy is still converted into thermal energy by the mechanical brakes. Often, only a fractional amount of the energy is fed back into the battery. The aim is to find power train topologies and concepts, which offer maximum regenerative braking and therefore a rise of the range.
