Markus Guerster

Markus Guerster

Markus is a graduate student pursuing his PhD degree in the System Architecture Lab of the Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics at MIT. His interests include the development of tools to support the decision-making process for complex engineering systems under uncertainty, in particular with focus on architectures for autonomy and automation. He received a M.Sc. degree (2017) with high distinction in Aerospace Engineering as well as a B.Sc. degree (2015) in Mechanical Engineering from the Technical University of Munich.

He worked as a System Engineer at OHB System AG for 2 years besides his studies and recently conducted a scientific study with in-tech GmbH to transfer aerospace methodologies to the railway industry.
