Curriculum Vitae

Bernd Hofmann was born 1991 in Germany. In 2010 he completed an apprenticeship as electronics technician for equipment and systems at the Andrew Wireless Systems GmbH, a Commscope company. He received the Bachelor of Engineering (B.Eng.) degree in electrical engineering (focus on information and communication technology) from the University of Applied Sciences Augsburg, in 2015 and the Master of Science (M.Sc.) degree in electrical engineering and information technology from the Technical University of Munich, in 2017. Since January 2018, he has been a Research Assistant and is working towards his PhD degree under the supervision of Professor Eibert at the Chair of High-Frequency Engineering, Technical University of Munich.

In 2017 Bernd Hofmann was laureate of the »IEEE AP-S Eugene F. Knott Memorial Pre-Doctoral Research Grant« and in 2021 of the »IEEE AP-S Doctoral Research Grant«, both awarded by the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society.
