Professional memberships and associations


During his tenure as head of the Automatic Control Chair at Paderborn University, Daniel was responsible for the design and implementation of the entire systems and control curriculum of the Faculty. He took this as an opportunity to modernise course contents and also teaching / learning methods in the BSc and MSc programmes offered. In particular, together with his group, he implemented innovative blended and practice-oriented learning concepts, including open-ending laboratory experiences. Courses offered include:

  • Regelungstechnik (Automatic Control)
  • Advanced Control
  • Advanced Systems Theory
  • Networked Estimation and Control
  • Topics in Automatic Control

In addition, Daniel has extensive experience with postgraduate student supervision and with coaching of early career academics. A selection of thesis topics is given below, followed by a list of his mentees.
