Welcome to My Website



I hope I can provide you with what you're looking for. This website contains information about both my personal and professional life as well as some other topics I’m interested in. If there's anything missing or wrong in these pages, please let me know.


I am an electrical engineer, holding a Dr.-Ing. (PhD) degree from the Christian-Albrechts University in Kiel, Germany. My PhD thesis is titled Hybrid Field Analysis of the Canonical GTEM-Cell - An Object-Oriented Approach.

Currently, I am an Assistant Research Professor at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering of the University of Kentucky in Lexington, KY, USA. My research is mostly happening at the Center for Visualization and Virtual Environments.

Feel free to review my professional profile on LinkedIn or XING.


I have been an active member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers for more than 15 years now, being a Senior Member and having served in various capacities. Currently, I am chair of the Publication Services and Products Board Strategic Planning Committee.


I am married to Dr.-Ing. Regina Hannemann, who is a lecturer, also at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering of the University of Kentucky. More information about the twists and turns of my life is available, but don’t expect too much as I try to do my part to reduce data pollution.


I use the GNU Privacy Guard (GnuPG) to both protect my personal and sign my official email communication. I'd like to invite you to learn a little bit more about this and to encourage you to use my public key when writing me an email.

Note that I have switched from PGP to GnuPG. While my old (PGP 2.6.3.i) key remains valid, I encourage everyone to use my new GnuPG key for better interoperability with new PGP and GnuPG versions.
