Tobi studied B.Sc. Business Informatics at the Fernuniversität Hagen and M.Sc. Informatics at TU Darmstadt. Since 2016, he is working as a research assistant in the "Distributed Sensing Systems" group at Multimedia Communications Lab. He finished his PhD with the topic "Data Management in Vehicular Networks" end of 2019, in which he assessed the quality of data to improve the data dissemination in vehicular networks. He developed a game-theoretic transmission model to maximize the value provided by the data shared in the network.
Since the beginning of 2020, he is the head of the "Adaptive Communication Systems" group at Multimedia Communications Lab. With the start of the third phase of the CRC MAKI (https://www.maki.tu-darmstadt.de), he became a principal investigator in subproject B1 - Monitoring and Analysis. Additionally, he collaborates with companies like Opel (relevance-based communication for cooperative manoeuvring) and Deutsche Bahn (resilient communication via 5G). His current research interest is centred around approximation techniques for communication networks to increase the resilience of these networks, especially for the mobile communication standard 5G.
