Prof. Dr.-Ing. Thomas Kürner
I am a university professor specializing in mobile radio systems at the Institute for Communications Technology at Technische Universität Braunschweig in Germany. My reseach areas are: indoor channel characterisation and system simulations for high-speed short-range systems including future terahertz communications systems; propagation, traffic and mobility models for automatic planning and selforganization of cellular radio networks; vehicle-to-X communications; as well as accuracy of satellite navigation systems. Currently, I am chair of the IEEE 802.15 Task Group 3d, chair of the IEEE 802.15 Interest Group THz, and vicechair of the IEEE 802.15 Task Group 3e.
About the School of Electrical Engineering, Information Technology, and Physics at Technische Universität Braunschweig
Technische Universität Braunschweig, founded in 1745, is one of the oldest Universities of Technology in Germany. Electrical Engineering and Information Technology at Technische Universität Braunschweig are taught in three 3-year bachelor and five 2-year master programs to approximately 1600 students, many of whom are studying toward joint degrees with computer science, mechanical engineering, or industrial engineering. The school has a long-standing tradition in standardization, as demonstrated by the technical leadership in the development of Digital Video Broadcast (DVB) by TU Braunschweig faculty member, Professor Ulrich Reimers. The school is also closely cooperating with the Braunschweig-based Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB), Germany’s national metrology institute and highest authority when it comes to correct and reliable measurements.
