Informatics building, room B100
Markus Gardill is professor for Satellite Communication Systems at the chair of computer science VII - robotics and telematics at the university of Würzburg.
From 2016 to 2020 he was head of the group radar signal processing & tracking at InnoSenT GmbH developing together with his team new generations of automotive radar sensors for advanced driver assistance systems and autnomous driving. Before he was R&D engineer and research cluster owner for optical and imaging metrology systems at Robert Bosch GmbH.
He received the Dipl.-Ing. and Dr.-Ing. degree in systems of information and multimedia technology/electrical engineering from the Friedrich-Alexander-University Erlangen-Nürnberg, Germany, in 2010 and 2015, respectively, where he was a research assistant, teaching fellow, and later head of the team for radio communication technology.
His main research interest include radar and communication systems, antenna (array) design, and signal processing algorithms.
His particular interest is space-time processing such as e.g. beamforming and direction-of-arrival estimation, together with cognitive and adaptive systems. He has a special focus on combining the domains of signal processing and microwave/electromagnetics to develop new approaches on antenna array implementation and array signal processing. His further research activities include distributed coherent/non-coherent networks for advanced detection and perception, machine-learning techniques for spatial signal processing, highly-flexible software defined radio/radar systems, and communication systems for NewSpace.
Markus Gardill is member of the IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society (IEEE MTT-S).
He served as co-chair of the IEEE MTT-S Technical Committee Digital Signal Processing (MTT-9), regularly acts as reviewer and TPRC member for several journals and conferences, and currently serves as associate editor of the Transactions on Microwave Theory and Techniques. He is a Distinguished Microwave Lecturer (DML) for the DML term 2018-2020 with a presentation on signal processing and system aspects of automotive radar systems.
