Nils Pohl (GSM’07–M’11–SM’14) received the Dipl.-Ing. and Dr.Ing. degrees in electrical engineering from Ruhr University Bochum, Bochum, Germany, in 2005 and 2010, respectively.
From 2006 to 2011, he was a Research Assistant with Ruhr University Bochum, where he was involved in integrated circuits for millimeter-wave (mm-wave) radar applications. In 2011, he became an Assistant Professor with Ruhr University Bochum. In 2013, he became the Head of the Department of mm-wave Radar and High Frequency Sensors with the Fraunhofer Institute for High Frequency Physics and Radar Techniques, Wachtberg, Germany. In 2016, he became a Full Professor for Integrated Systems with Ruhr University Bochum. He has authored or coauthored more than 100 scientific papers and has issued several patents. His current research interests include ultra-wideband mm-wave radar, design, and optimization of mm-wave integrated SiGe circuits and system concepts with frequencies up to 300 GHz and above, as well as frequency synthesis and antennas.
Prof. Pohl is a member of VDE, ITG, EUMA, and URSI. He was a co-recipient of the 2009 EEEfCom Innovation Award, the 2012 EuMIC Prize, and the 2015 Best Demo Award of the IEEE Radio Wireless Week, and a recipient of the Karl-Arnold Award of the North Rhine-Westphalian Academy of Sciences, Humanities and the Arts in 2013 and the IEEE MTT Outstanding Young Engineer Award in 2018.
