Christian was a research associate in the Signal Processing Group from 2006 to 2010. His work was mainly focused on target detection and classification for radar images. In 2010 he successfully defended his PhD with summa cum laude on “Advances in Detection and Classification for Through-the-Wall Radar Imaging” (Download his PhD thesis here). From 2010 to 2011 Christian continued working as a postdoctoral research fellow in the Signal Processing Group at TU Darmstadt on numerous research topics in the areas of signal detection, classification and reconstruction. Since 2011 he is a lecturer at the department of electrical engineering and information technology, giving a course on Advances in Digital Signal Processing: Imaging and Image Processing that is held every summer semester.

In 2011 Christian started work at the R&D Center of AGT International where he now holds a position as lead data scientist. He is responsible for several research topics in the area of human behavior modeling, activity recognition and data fusion.
