Michael Schutte, born in Innsbruck in 1991. Citizen of Austria.
PhD studies at the Graduate School of Systemic Neurosciences,
I started my PhD studies in the lab of Lutz Wiegrebe, a biologist who otherwise specialised in bat echolocation, to study interactions of hearing and vision in the perception of space. After Lutz’ death, my work is now supervised by Benedikt Grothe. I work in close collaboration with Stephan Ewert’s lab at the University of Oldenburg, to develop a real-time room-acoustical simulation framework which will facilitate future experiments on acoustically guided navigation.
|April 2014—August 2016||
MSc studies at the Department of Informatics,
In my masters’ studies of computer science, I focused on formal methods, scientific computing and computer vision. In an interdisciplinary project with Jörg Encke and Werner Hemmert, I worked on a model of electrical field propagation in implanted cochleae. In my thesis with Igor Yakushev and Kuangyu Shi at the Department of Nuclear Medicine of the TUM university hospital, I developed a method to combine structural and metabolic connectivity and evaluated it on the computer-based differential diagnosis of dementia disorders.
|October 2010—September 2013||
BSc studies of Biomedical Informatics,
In my undergraduate thesis, I worked with Matthias Dehmer on the quantitative analysis of complex networks using methods of algebraic graph theory. In two internships, I worked on an HL7 server for the medical picture archiving and communication system developed by synedra, and with Peter Birkholz on a nasal probe to detect the position of a human subject’s soft palate via sonar.
|December 2018, December 2019||
Methods in Psychophysics,
I gave lectures on spatial hearing and psychophysical methods and helped students set up and conduct their own psychophysical experiments.
|October 2015—March 2016||
Exercises in Discrete Structures,
I offered weekly homework discussion sessions to two groups of about a dozen students each, corrected their homework and helped mark the final exams.
|April 2015—July 2015||
Exercises in Compiler Construction,
I offered weekly homework discussions, an exam preparation session and corrected student homework.
|November 2013—September 2015||
MED-EL Medical Electronics,
As part of a team concerned with the development of a new prosthetic implant for the organ of balance, I developed a simulation program and interface software for prototype devices.
