Academic Career and Research Areas

The research of Prof. Biebl (b. 1959) centers on microwave sensors and communication systems. Part of his focus is on localizing methods to determine the driving environment in automobiles. He also researches communication between road users as a key requirement for future comfort and safety functions.

After studying electrical engineering at TUM, he spent a few years as a development engineer and project manager at Rohde & Schwarz. Afterwards, he returned to TUM to gain a doctorate at the Chair of High-Frequency Engineering in 1991. He qualified as a lecturer in 1994. Since 1999, he has been an associate professor at TUM. Prof. Biebl is a senior member of the IEEE and board member of the IEEE MTT/AP German Chapter. He is a member of Commission B of the U.R.S.I. committee Germany and a liaison lecturer at TUM’s Hanns-Seidel-Stiftung.
