Nils Pohl 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 FHR, Wachtberg, Germany. In 2016, he became a Full Professor for Integrated Systems with Ruhr University Bochum. In parallel, he is head of the Research group for Integrated Radar Sensors at Fraunhofer FHR. He has authored or coauthored more than 200 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 500 GHz and above, as well as frequency synthesis and antennas.
Prof. Pohl is a member of IEEE, VDE, ITG, EUMA, and URSI. He was a co-recipient of the 2009 EEEfCom Innovation Award, 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. Additionally, he was co-recipient of the best paper award at EUMIC 2012, best demo award at RWW 2015, and best student paper awards at RadarConf 2020, RWW 2021 and EUMIC 2021.
