Dr. Bülow received the diploma (FH) from the University of Applied Sciences Braunschweig/Wolfenbüttel and the M.Phil degree from the University of Glamorgan. Afterwards he gained 8 years industrial experience working in research and development of sonar signal processing. He received the PhD degree from Jacobs University Bremen. He worked on the EU-project Co3-AUVs and is currently working on the EU-project MORPH.
His research interests include multidimensional signal processing (in particular spectral registration and array processing), machine vision, pattern recognition and autonomous systems.
 


Theses:

Diploma (FH): Filter Design Techniques for Video and Image Processing applications
