Curriculum Vitae

Bastian Schürmann is a PhD candidate at the Institute of Robotics and Embedded Systems at the Technical University of Munich, Germany, where he works in the Cyber-Physical Systems group with Professor Matthias Althoff. His research focuses on obtaining controllers with high performance and formal guarantees for safety-critical systems. This is achieved by combining methods from control and optimization with reachability analysis. Application areas include autonomous driving and human-robot interaction.

Bastian received his B.Sc. in Electrical Engineering from the University of Kaiserslautern in 2012. Parallel to completing a M.Sc. degree in Engineering Cybernetics at the University of Stuttgart, he finished an additional M.Sc. in Electrical Engineering at the University of California, Los Angeles under a Fulbright Fellowship in 2014. During this time he worked in the group of Professor Paulo Tabuada on correct-by-construction controller design.
