The competition, held for the fifth consecutive time at EUSIPCO, is organised annually by the European Association for Signal Processing (EURASIP). This year, ten doctoral candidates were invited to EUSIPCO in A Coruña on the basis of 3-minute videos submitted in advance. The candidates from different universities had to present their doctoral topic live in three minutes in front of 125 spectators. The audience then voted to select the three winners.

Ann-Kathrin Seifert has been researching radar-based gait detection since October 2015. Using the so-called radar micro-Doppler signatures, abnormalities in the gait can be detected without the need for wearable sensors. The doctoral work of Ann-Kathrin Seifert is supervised by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Abdelhak Zoubir and Prof. Dr. Moeness Amin from Villanova University, PA, USA.

Congratulations, Ann-Kathrin!
