Academic Career and Research Areas

The research of Sebastian Steinhorst (b. 1980) centers around design methodology and the hard­ware/software co-design of distributed embedded systems for use in Internet of Things, smart energy and automotive applications. Key aspects are the architecture, modelling, verification, efficiency, dependability and security of such systems, taking all abstraction levels into consideration.
Prof. Steinhorst studied computer science at Goethe University Frankfurt, Germany. He received his PhD from the same university in 2011. From 2011 to 2016 he worked at the TUM CREATE research center in Singapore where he was leading the Embedded Systems Group as principal investigator (since 2015) and previously held senior research fellow and research fellow positions. From May till September 2016 he was an assistant professor in the Department of Engineering at Aarhus Uni­ver­sity, Denmark. Sebastian Steinhorst has been a Rudolf Moessbauer tenure track assistant professor at TUM since November 2016.
