In September 2018 Franziska joined the research project “Mensch in Bewegung” as a research assistant at the THI. She obtained her diploma in environmental engineering specializing in measurement technology from the University of Applied Sciences Jena in 2007. From 2008 to 2012 she worked at the research institute DESY in Hamburg as a technical employee in different research fields (ATLAS, FLC, TPC) and has done e.g. thermomechanical and cooling simulations. In May 2013, she graduated from the City University of Applied Sciences Bremen receiving her Master of Science in locomotion in bionics. From June 2013 to August 2018 Franziska worked at the TU Bergakademie Freiberg as a research assistant in flow control via bionic-inspired micro-pillars and flaps and did different experiments on wall shear stress measurements for example inside an aorta.
