Christian Carlowitz (S‘13, M‘17) was born in Wolfenbüttel, Germany, in 1985. He received his Dipl.-Ing. degree in information technology from the Clausthal University of Technology in 2010. In May 2018, he was awarded the Dr.-Ing. degree from the Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) for his thesis on “wireless high-speed communication based on regenerative sampling”.

He is with the Institute of Microwaves and Photonics at FAU, where he is leading the “Microwave and Photonic Systems” group since 2018. His research comprises conception, design and implementation of innovative system architectures for radar and communication frontends at microwave, mm-wave and optical frequencies. He focuses especially on hardware concepts as well as analog and digital signal processing techniques for ultra-wideband high-speed communication systems, full-duplex mobile communication transceivers, massive MIMO base stations and for ranging and communication with mm-wave RFID systems.

Dr. Carlowitz is member of the IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society (MTT-S) and serves as a member of the IEEE MTT-S Technical Coordinating Committee Digital Signal Processing (MTT-9). He is regular reviewer for the Transactions on Microwave Theory and Techniques as well as for several international conferences.
