Tim Schumacher, M. Sc.

Department of Electrical-Electronic-Communication Engineering
Chair of Electronics (Prof. Dr. Weigel)


Curriculum Vitae

He received the B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in Electrical Engineering from the Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nuernberg, Germany, in 2014 and 2017, respectively. His master thesis addressed the partial design of an integrated pipelined analog-to-digital converter. He joined the Institute for Integrated Circuits (IIC) at the Johannes Kepler University, Linz in 2017 as a research assistant and is working towards his Ph.D. degree in Electronics and Information Technology. His current research interests are focused on integrated ultra-low-power receivers.
