ESR1 – Mohammed Yusuf

I come from India, where I got a Bachelor degree in Electronics and Communications Engineering, after which I pursued a Master degree in Electrical Engineering from Rochester Institute of Technology. My main area of focus has been control systems. I have worked on projects related to autonomous systems and control techniques. As a part of my Master’s thesis, I worked on modelling of wind turbines where different control strategies were applied to adjust the rotor speed.
Currently I am working in the research group of Professor Norbert Gretz at the Centre for Medical Research of the University of Heidelberg at Mannheim, Germany. I am also enrolled as a PhD candidate at the University of Heidelberg. My work is on the engineering side of the RenalToolBox project, specifically in developing a device to facilitate the estimation of transcutaneous measurements of various kidney function parameters. We aim to design and produce a device that is flexible and mostly comprising of printed electronic elements to detect the bio markers (dyes) developed during the course of the project.
