Short biography

Prof. Nick Rüssmeier joined the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence in 2020 as a member of the Research Department Marine Perception and is a full Professor for Mechatronics at the Jade University of Applied Sciences in Wilhelmshaven. He has a degree in Environmental Process Engineering and has worked as a development engineer in the field of mobile optical sensor systems, medical analytics and process engineering in industry projects. He completed his PhD at the Department of Computer Science at the University of Oldenburg within the project Critical Systems Engineering for Socio-Technical Systems.

His research focuses on the development and application of distributed mobile sensorsystems and data stream management for situational awareness. This includes the optimization and analysis of multispectral sensing techniques as well as methods for optical flow measurements to be used in environmental and trafficmonitoring.
