I participated in the SHM in Action session as part of the 9th European Workshop on Structural Health Monitoring in Manchester (UK). An SHM demonstrator was presented there that shows the data communication capabilities of guided ultrasound waves. This additional feature might be exploited in future guided wave-based SHM systems. More information on this experiment...

Sparse image reconstruction techniques represent an interesting approach towards improved damage localization in guided wave based structural health monitoring systems. A conference paper has been accepted as oral presentation at the 5th International Workshop on Compressed Sensing applied to Radar, Multimodal Sensing and Imaging (https://workshops.fhr.fraunhofer.de/cosera/).

A paper related to recent developments in the B2-Monitor project has been accepted for publication in the Progress In Electromagnetics Research (PIER) journal (http://www.jpier.org/PIER/pier.php?paper=18021905). The article describes an imaging radar system for structural health monitoring (SHM) of wind turbine blades.

I had the possibility to visit Dr. Frederic Cegla, Dr. Zahra Sharif Khodaei and Prof. Peter Cawley at Imperial College London. Our recent developments in the area of guided wave-based acoustic data communication have been presented in a group seminar setting. The title of the presentation was “Guided wave-based acoustic data communication in cylindrical and...

About 130 researchers from all over Germany came together in Berlin in January 2018 to discuss the most recent advances in bat research (www.tdff.de). I have given a talk on the B²-Monitor project with the title “FMCW Radar System at Millimeter-wave Frequencies for the Detection of Bats at Wind Turbine Installations: Initial Results From a...

Grouted connections (GC) are structural joints formed by a cementitious grout cast between two concentric circular tubes. They are widely used in the offshore construction of oil and gas platforms, and for offshore wind turbines (monopiles and jackets).

In collaboration with the Institute for Diagnostic and Interventional Radiology (Prof. Vogl, University Hospital Frankfurt am Main) I am studying ultra-wideband (UWB) microwave radar techniques for breast cancer detection. Moreover, microwave spectroscopy measurements have been conducted on breast biopsy samples.
