About Me

Maximilian graduated with honors with a master’s degree in electrical engineering-electronics-information technology in November 2018, building on his bachelor’s degree in medical engineering. From February 2019, he worked as a research assistant at the Institute of Electronics Engineering in the Circuits, Systems and Hardware Test (CST) team until February 2022, when he moved to the Chair of Electrical Smart City Systems. His current research interests include biosignal processing, combined radar and communication systems, and circuit and radio frequency design, particularly for automotive applications. He received his doctorates in August 2023 with distinction and was appointed as a temporary academic councilor in September of the same year.

Dr. Lübke has also headed the Radio Technology and Networks group since September.

He is a member of the IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society, Communications and Vehicular Technology Society.
