Short CV

Kolja Kühnlenz was a Senior Research Scientist and Senior Lecturer at the Institute of Automatic Control Engineering, Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology, TUM, and Director of the Dynamic Vision Research Laboratory until 2012. He was also the leader of an Independent Junior Research Group within the Munich Cluster of Excellence “Cognition for Technical Systems – CoTeSys” and Principal Investigator within the Bernstein Center of Computational Neuroscience Munich. He received the engineering degree in Electrical Engineering in 2002 from Technical University of Berlin and the Doctor of Engineering degree in Electrical Engineering in 2007 from TUM. From 2003 to 2006 he was a research and teaching assistant at the Institute of Automatic Control Engineering, TUM. He has held positions in executive boards, e.g. BCCN, and organizing committees, e.g. Program Chair of IEEE RO-MAN 2008.
Since 2014, Kolja Kühnlenz has been a professor at the Coburg University of Applied Science and Arts.
