Profil

I am currently a doctoral candidate supervised by Prof. Dr. Joachim Hertzberg at the University of Osnabrück, and Prof. Dr. Gerhard Kraetzschmar at BRSU. I obtained my bachelor's degree in Computer Science from Rutgers, the State University of NJ in 1996 and my master's degree in Autonomous Systems in 2008 from BRSU.
