Dr. David Eckhoff

I am one of the principal investigators at TUMCREATE, Singapore, leading the computer science team. My research focuses on future transportation technologies, simulation, the smart city, and privacy.


Short Biography

A picture of my face.

David Eckhoff is the principal investigator of the computer science group at TUMCREATE, Singapore, a joint research institute by TU Munich and Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. David received his Ph.D. degree in engineering (Dr.-Ing., with distinction) and his M.Sc. degree in computer science (Dipl.-Inf. Univ., graduating top of his class) from the University of Erlangen in 2016 and 2009, respectively. In 2016 he was a visiting scholar with the group of Prof. Lars Kulik at the University of Melbourne, Australia. In October 2016, he joined TUMCREATE in Singapore in the group of Prof. Alois Knoll. His research interests include privacy protection, smart cities, vehicular networks, and intelligent transportation systems with a particular focus on modelling and simulation.
