Short Bio

Julian studied computer science at TU Darmstadt. Since late 2018, he is working as a research assistant in the research group "Distributed Sensing Systems" at KOM. His research interest is centered around aerial communication networks, using small UAVs for the provision of ad-hoc communication in emergency situations.

Teaching Activities

I am always looking for students interested in writing their Bachelor- or Master-Thesis in the field of adaptive aerial communication systems and infrastructureless communication networks. A list of currently open topics is published here. If you have an idea for a thesis that is not covered in the list, do not hesitate to contact me directly.
