Employment record

06/2015 – 02/2016

Intern in an innovation project of the Corporate Division,
Bosch Corporation, Japan

09/2011 – 11/2013

Research assistant at the Chair of Engineering Design and Plastics Machinery, University of Duisburg-Essen, Germany


Current Research: Compliant Shell Structures in Upper Extremity Exoskeletons

Development of an arm exoskeleton based on shell mechanisms, which are thin-walled structures that can move due to large elastic deflections. Shell mechanisms are characterized by a high degree of function integration and enable the creation of hollow, thin-walled mechanisms that are extremely slender, lightweight and robust.

Former Research: Injection moulding of highly filled thermoplastic compounds

  • Application of injection moulding simulation on highly filled, electrically conductive polyphenylene sulphide compounds based on process-oriented material data
  • Optimization of an injection moulding system by development of a process-calibrated model for electrically conductive thermo plastics

Other Activities

Scholarship Holder in the program "Japanese Studies and Professional Training in Japan" sponsored by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD)

Program Outline:

  • 10 month of language studies at the Tokyo School of the Japanese Language, Naganuma School
  • 8 month of work experience in a Japanese or international company in Japan
