Biography

Ronny Gündel received his Diploma-Engineering (FH) (Dipl.-Ing. (FH)) degree at the University of Applied Sciences in Zwickau in January 2017. During his studies, he was employed for 2.5 years as a student researcher at the Fraunhofer Institute for Machine Tools and Forming Technology in Chemnitz (IWU). For the last quarter of employment, the Fraunhofer institute operated as the practical partner for the diploma-thesis. The thesis for a reliable image transmission for a multi-camera-system was selected as an outstanding thesis from the University. In 2017/18 he joined Villanova University (USA) as a Fulbright scholar for a graduate program in Electrical Engineering. Over summer 2018, he worked on wireless communications for vehicular connectivity as a visitor at the Vodafone Char Dresden under Prof. Gerhard Fettweis. In 2018/2019, the Center for Advanced Communications of Villanova University offered him a research assistantship under the guidance of Dr. Moeness G. Amin, working on radar classification of consecutive and contiguous human motions with an industry partner in Philadelphia. Besides the industrial work, he graduated with a Master of Science degree in Signal Processing and Communications in 2019. Ronny Gündel joined TU Delft in January 2020, in the MS3 (Microwave Sensing Signals & Systems) section led by Prof. Alexander Yarovoy within the Department of Microelectronics. Currently, he is working on monitoring of continuous human activities in range and time beyond micro-Doppler by using RF-sensing technology.
