Experience

Making autonomous ride-hailing services a safe reality.

Robert Bosch GmbH

 Germany
Test Engineer
2019 – present

Working on a project for the development of a SAE L4 urban automated driving system. Defining the first release of the security test concept based on the complete system and software architecture with focus on risk mitigation against vehicle attacks. Analyzing threats against sensors and compute platform components on functional chain level. Implementing security tests (e.g. QNX hardening), software test methods (e.g. AFL++ fuzzing) and test automation on target hardware in CI fashion. Researching adversarial sensor attack potentials on deep learning perception models, and validating the system robustness during attacks in simulations and test track measurements.

Bosch Engineering GmbH

 Germany
Software Engineer
2017 – 2019

Worked on adaptive cruise control systems with radar and camera data fusion in the field of driver assistance systems. Developed and maintained radar software components related to digital signal processing, vehicle dynamics estimation, object classification and situational analysis. Gained firm knowledge in the analysis of vehicle measurements with focus on identification of target object loss reasons and object type misclassifications.

Valeo Schalter und Sensoren GmbH

 Germany
Software Engineer
2016 – 2017

Worked on a project for the development of a novel automotive lidar sensor. Developed road lane and border extraction algorithms in C++. Implemented a test environment to analyze the detection performance using OpenCV. Experimented with the design and implementation of signal processing algorithms.

Robert Bosch GmbH

 Germany
Software Engineer
2014 – 2016

Worked on a project for the development of a 48V electrical boost recuperation machine. Implemented software requirements in Matlab/Simulink under consideration of the V-model specification and ISO-26262 compliance. Verified algorithms in Simulink and Hardware-in-the-Loop simulations. Performed tests by analyzing code coverage, runtime and controls.

Robert Bosch LLC

 United States
Internship
2012

Conducted a business case study in the field of rapid prototyping for flexible engine control. Designed a gasoline engine control interface implemented in Matlab/Simulink to set and monitor engine speed or load through fuel injection and ignition based on driver's demand. Tested the developed environment on target sensors and actuators at the customer site.
