Thorsten Nowak received his diploma in engineering from the University of Ulm, Germany, in 2009, and is currently working toward the Ph.D. degree at Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU). In 2008, he joined Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits (IIS), where he was a research assistant at the Locating & Communication Systems Department within the Sensor Fusion & Event Processing Group. His focus was on multipath mitigation techniques, multisensor data fusion, localization systems, and RFID. Since 2013, he is with Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU), working for the Departement of Electrical, Electronic and Communication Engineering. He is a research assistant at the Insitute of Information Technology (Communication Electronics) and is involved in the Research Unit BATS — Dynamic Adaptable Applications for Bats Tracking by Embedded Communicating Systems funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG).

He received the best paper award for his contribution Dynamic Multipath Mitigation Applying Unscented Kalman Filters in Local Positioning Systems in the frame of the European Conference on Wireless  Technology (EuWiT) in 2010 and took 2nd place in the IEEE IMS Software Defined Radio (SDR) Design Competition in 2015. He regularly serves in the program committee of the IEEE ICC and is a reviewer for the IEEE Systems Magazin, the International Journal of Microwave and Wireless Technologies, and the Elsevier Journals of Adhoc Networks and Computer Communications.
