Curriculum Vitae

Patrick Halder joined the Cyber Physical Systems Group as a PhD student under the supervision of Prof. Dr.-Ing. Matthias Althoff in 2021. He graduated with the Master of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering from the Technical University of Munich in 2019. He received the Bachelor of Engineering degree in Automotive Engineering from the Baden-Wuerttemberg Cooperative State University (DHBW) in 2016. He is employed at ZF Friedrichshafen AG as a Function-Developer for autonomous driving.

His research interests include rule-compliant motion planning of autonomous vehicles and formal methods.
