Name: Prof. Dr. Ralf Bachmayer
Research Group for Marine Environmental Technology and Deepsea Engineering
Phone: +49 421 218-65890
Room: MARUM I , 1440
Dr. Bachmayer is since July 1st, 2017 Professor for Marine Environmental Technology and Deepsea Engineering at MARUM – University of Bremen, Germany, sponsored by the Werner Siemens-Foundation. His main research interests lie in the domain of marine robotics with a focus on unmanned marine systems. In particular he is interested in the design, control and networking of heterogeneous marine observation systems for persistent, long-term observations.
Dr. Bachmayer received his engineering degree in electrical engineering from the Technische Universität Karlsruhe, Karlsruhe, Germany in 1995. He worked at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution in the USA as a visiting researcher, completing his Diploma thesis on the topic of adaptive control of an AUV (ABE) for terrain following. In 1995 he joined the Dynamical Systems and Control Laboratory in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, MD, USA. Here he earned a M.Sc. and PhD degree on the topic of identification, modelling and control of underwater propulsion systems. He joined the Dynamical Control Systems Laboratory at Princeton University as a Research Associate in 2000 where he worked on multi-vehicle systems and underwater gliders. In 2003 he joined the National Research Council Canada – Institute for Ocean Technology in St. John’s , NL, Canada as an Associate Research Officer. He joined Memorial University of Newfoundland in St. John’s in 2008 where he started the Autonomous Ocean Systems Laboratory (www.aosl.ca) in 2009, working on unmanned marine vehicles and systems for harsh environments. Since July 2017, he holds a Professorship in Marine Environmental Technology / Deep-Sea Engineering at MARUM.
