Curriculum Vitae

Florian Finkeldei joined the Cyber-Physical-Systems Group as a Ph.D. candidate under the supervision of Prof. Dr.-Ing. Matthias Althoff in October 2022. For his bachelor's degree, he studied mechanical engineering at RWTH Aachen University. Subsequently, he obtained two master's degrees:  At RWTH Aachen University, he completed Automation Engineering with a focus on optimal control. He complemented this with a master's degree in Management Science and Engineering at Tsinghua University, specializing in operations research and optimization.

His research interests include the automatic testing and falsification of autonomous vehicles.
