Sergej Fatikow, Dr.-Ing is a Professor of the Division of Microrobotics and Control Engineering (AMiR) at the University of Oldenburg (UNIOL). He studied electrical engineering and computer science at the Ufa Aviation Technical University in Russia, where he received his doctoral degree in 1988 with work on fuzzy control of complex non-linear systems. After that he worked until 1990 as a lecturer at the same university. During his work in Russia he published over 30 papers and successfully applied for over 50 patents in intelligent control and mechatronics. In 1990 he moved to the Institute for Process Control and Robotics at the University of Karlsruhe in Germany, where he worked as a postdoctoral scientific researcher and since 1994 as Head of the research group “Microrobotics and Micromechatronics”. He became an assistant professor in 1996. In 2000 he accepted a professor position at the University of Kassel, Germany. A year later, he was invited to establish a new Division for Microrobotics and Control at the University of Oldenburg, Germany. Since 2001 he has been a professor in the Department of Computing Science and Head of this division. He is also Head of Technology Cluster Automated Nanohandling at the Research Institute for Information Technology (OFFIS) in Germany.
His research interests include micro- and nanorobotics, automated robot-based nanohandling in SEM, micro- and nanoassembly, AFM-based nanohandling, sensor feedback on the nanoscale, and neuro-fuzzy robot control. He is author of three books on microsystem technology, microrobotics and microassembly, robot-based nanohandling, and automation on the nanoscale, published by Springer in 1997, Teubner in 2000, and Springer in 2008.
Since 1990 he published over 80 book chapters and journal papers and over 200 conference papers. He has supervised more than 25 PhD candidates in his Division. Prof. Fatikow is Founding Chair of the International Conference on Manipulation, Manufacturing and Measurement on the Nanoscale.
Albert Sill, Ph.D, is managing director. He is responsible for project acquisition and the management of running projects. He will take over the management coordination for UOld on the project.
