Markus P. Nemitz


Postdoctoral Fellow in the Whitesides Research Group at Harvard University. Markus obtained his PhD from the Centre of Doctoral Training in Intelligent Sensing and Measurement under supervision of Dr. Adam Stokes, a conjoined program from the University of Edinburgh and the University of Glasgow. Prior his PhD, he received a Master’s degree in Electronics Engineering from the University of Edinburgh, a Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering from Bochum University of Applied Sciences (GER), and an Electronics Technician Degree in Automation Technology from the German Chambers of Industry and Commerce (Dualstudium). Markus was awarded an Academic Affiliate position at the University of Michigan throughout his doctoral studies. In Ann Arbor, he worked with Professor Edwin Olson and Professor Alfred Hero on the development of manufacturable robot swarms and two-dimensional mapping techniques using robot collisions as sensing modality. Markus is interested in search and rescue research, providing novel technologies for the aid of first responders including large-scale, data-driven robot swarms, reconfigurable fully autonomous soft robots, and smart medical devices focusing on emergency medicine.
