Short Bio

Marvin Damschen joined the Chair for Embedded Systems in October 2014 as a research assistant. He received a B.Sc. degree - with distinction - and M.Sc. degree - with distinction - in Computer Science with a minor in Mathematics from the University of Paderborn in 2012 and 2014, respectively. Currently, he is pursuing his PhD under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Jörg Henkel.
